Eggs in the dirt for tomatos

by Randy Williams

I have used eggs for my tomatos for years. A couple of days before you plant your tomato plants, set out three eggs per plant. After you dig the hole, place the eggs in the bottom of the hole (unbroken)and finish your planting. As the plants roots grow they will wrap around the eggs and gain important nutrients from the eggs during the growing season. Works great.

Whole eggs?

I love this idea. Just to make SURE: You are referring to using whole eggs- un-cracked and intact? Then the roots wrap, break, and feed off of the yolks etc...and that offers the extra nutrients?
