…when you offer them some compost tea and they think you’re offering them a cool beverage to drink.
Or…when you hand them a tomato sucker and tell them, “Take a broom stick and make a hole about a foot deep and stick this (the tomato sucker) in it. Water it and firm the dirt around it. You should get a new plant,” and somehow they take away from that that you’re telling them to plant a broom stick.
Well, I can think of worse things to be “obsessed” with: Lying, cheating, stealing, booze, drugs, gambling. So, as obsessions go, this is a pretty innocuous one. You get free food (unless you’re growing that $100 tomato), free exercise, free meditation time. Nope, I don’t mind being obsessed.
And you learn to get free plants EG style. After watching his video on rooting and pruning tomato suckers, about a week ago I stuck four tomato suckers that I pruned from my cherry tomatoes into the ground and ended up with three growing tomato plants. Here’s a photo of the largest one looking sung and cozy.
So, is it just me or has anybody else had somebody say something like that to them?
