Is segment one Joey and Holly debunk a few garden myths
If you add sugar to the soil around your tomatoes, you’ll grow a sweeter vegetable.
Nope, sorry, it doesn’t work that way, but I sure wish it did. The only way to grow a sweet tomato is to choose a sweet variety.
Generally, you want to choose a smaller cultivar if you like them to be sweet.
You can still improve the overall flavor and taste of any tomato you grow by being consistent with your watering and the sunlight it receives.
Tomatoes benefit tremendously from steady nurturing, and if you set your plants in healthy soil, with careful watering and diligent care, you’ll be rewarded with a harvest of tasty fruit.
I have one earthworm. I will cut it in half and have TWO earthworms!
It doesn’t work that way. One part dies and the tries to heal
Earthworms are relatively simple organisms and they can regenerate after suffering severe damage, but they still have a brain, a circulatory system, and nerves.
If you cut a worm in half, the top end (the side with that big bump on it) could survive and repair the damaged tissue, but it’s impossible for the other half to do much of anything except rot in the ground.
It’s impossible to avoid injuring earthworms when we’re digging into the soil (believe me, I’ve tried), but the least we can do to help out our favorite aerators and composters is to avoid injuring them whenever possible, especially by not intentionally cutting them in two!
Coffee grounds will make you soil acidic and pine needles can too
The pH of coffee grounds has been reported to be anything from 4.6 to 8.4 (ref 1) . Coffee Grounds from local Starbucks is labeled with a pH of 6.8 and their testing report indicates a pH of 6.2 (ref 2). A commonly reported value is 6.7. That is just barely acidic.
What Type of Soil do You Have?
It is important to know the type of soil you have. Armed with this knowledge, you can then estimate how effective any soil amendment might be in acidifying soil. Slightly acidic soil amendments will not change the pH of most soils–very sandy soil may be the exception.
Adding organic material with a pH of 6.7 will not make your soil acidic.
Organic pesticides are safer than conventional
MYTH: Using organic pesticides are safe.
Pyrethrum, for example, is made from chrysanthemums but is still
toxic to people and pets when handled improperly
Read and follow all label directions –
these products are tools, not miracle
Even if not lethal, many of these
pesticides can cause serious health
Misused pesticides can be harmful, regardless of whether they are considered natural or synthetic
Watering during the heat of day burns plant leaves
Theory is - the sun will cause the water droplets formed on leaves to magnify the sun
Not true - physicists found that water droplets on a leaf surface were not able to focus the sun's energy sufficiently to damage the leaves before the water evaporated.
Plants are most likely having other issues - like lack of nutrients, or reactions to over fertlization, etc.
