111 days later… tomato. the fruit

‘Long story short… 
In October, we received life changing seed of this glorious fruit. By the end of the month, the seeds had made it into soil, well, into soil in tiny ol’ milk bags from the city yonder. First sprouts were in 3 days. A month later, they were moved to the land. Early December we saw the flowers followed closely by fruit. Jan 30th was our first harvest!

  1. HI

    I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHETHER U INTRODUCE MINERALS SUCH AS MAGNESIUM (EPSOM SALT) ETC TO THE SOIL OR NOT ?

    I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE RAISING YOUR FARM ORGANICALLY BUT WANT TO KNOW HOW THE SOIL CONTENT OF THE VITAL MINERALS ARE THERE OR NOT OR HAVE U EVER GOT THE SOIL TESTED ?

    I AM ASKING THIS BECAUSE I AM HAVING MAGNESIUM CHELATE SUPPLEMENTS AND I FEEL WONDERFUL.

    PL GIVE ME YOUR INPUTS.

    REGARDS

    VIREN

    NOTE ALSO ADD MY WIFE SMITA TO YOUR NEWSLETTER HER EMAIL ID – merchant.smita@gmail.com

    • Hi Viren,
      Key observations, thanks for sharing!
      Macro nutrients soil needs are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Micro nutrients (zinc, mag, etc.) depend on the soil health and tree/veg being farmed. Our soil feed includes a ferment of foliage, manure, and other inputs off the land itself. We have never tested the soil, but instead, use natural indicators by the plant life to learn about it’s needs.
      Sure, we’ve included Smita to our mailers.
