Preparing for the tomatoes

As always I have more tomatoes in my nursery than room in my garden. So I have been busy preparing the holes for the lucky ones that are garden bound.
First I dig the holes and to the holes I add ...composted lamb manure that has been curing since last summerand then I add a cupful of calcium (Aragonite) to prevent blossom drop and a generous cupful of greensandthen I mix that all up and water well and let it warm up in the sun for a day before bringing out the transplants. It leaves a little well that is good for wind protection and early watering.
