Lord, we give You our garden: the seeds, the plants, and the labor. We trust that You will give us exactly what we need for moisture & sunlight. And when our harvest comes in, we know it will be the perfect amount to feed us and share with others. May it nourish the bodies of all who partake of it – fill us with what we need to help You with Your harvest! Amen.

    Does the lime sweeten the tomatoes? Or does it repel bugs? My grandmother always used Epsom salt when planting tomatoes and hers were so good! Maybe it was because they were Grandma’s. πŸ™‚

      Sorry it took me a few days to answer you – I had to ask Mike’s mom because I really didn’t know why she always limes the soil around the maters, lol! πŸ™‚

      She said she has read that tomatoes grow better in a “sweet” soil. So since lime raises the pH level of the soil, it should be a sweet growin’ area for them. πŸ™‚

      She wasn’t sure if it actually makes the maters taste sweeter, though… πŸ™‚
