No tomatoes?
by: Tracy

I had the same problem last year. I had dug a new garden, and it got the same amount of light, same soil, same manure, same everything as the other one, and in the other one the previous year I had tomatoes coming out my ears.

I couldn't figure it out until I parked myself a chair by that garden and was doing some thinking, because it was my whole garden, cucumbers, squash, peppers, pumpkins; they all had blossoms but no fruit.

It was real quiet outside that day, no wind, no BUZZING; I had no bees to pollinate the blossoms! I went into the house and made a mixture of a gallon of water and a cup of sugar and boiled it let it cool and then diluted it down so it wasn't so sickening sweet and put it into a spray bottle and squirted as many blossoms as I could until my back was killing me and voila! the bees came.

It was a real pain in the back and the butt because I had to do it after each time I watered the garden. I figured with the over-head sprinkler I probably washed it all off each time I watered.

This year I got smart; I have already bought my wildflower mix and am going to plant some here and there in that garden, and that will bring the bees.. Good luck!
