Did you know that milk is good for tomatoes and peppers?
Tomatoes and peppers need calcium. Calcium helps prevent blossom end rot and I’ve experienced that in the past.
I also knew that using egg shells and powdered milk around the plants would provide good sources of calcium.
If one can use powdered milk, why not any type of milk? Well, it seems that milk has more benefits for tomatoes and peppers than I knew.
Diluting milk and using it to water tomato and peppers plants is not only beneficial in providing calcium, but spraying the mixture on the plants is beneficial in preventing plant fungus. I had no idea and this piece of information is awesome!! I have an over abundance of milk right now and some will likely expire before we can use it, but it won’t go to waste. That milk is going into the garden and help produce some lovely, tasty tomatoes.
I love gardening!!!! It’s also a little addictive!!!!
