One of my neighbors swears by putting a clean disposable diaper plastic side down 6 to 10 inches below the bottom of the tomatoe transplant. I guess it is because of the watersorb in the diaper, the roots have a really good water supply down there? Anyone else tried this?
Drew, I would not ask Carolyn that, because she'll probably tell you not to forget the matchsticks(Books), birth control pills, lucky rabbits foot etc. I'm new to the game, but never heard of it or tried it, then again I have no children, so diapers are not high on my shopping list. If it works give it a shot, you could only learn by trying, and give us the feedback, and good luck with the tomatoes. Your gardening friend, Danny
