This 2011 season was the first time I used this tomato food. In the past I'd always used the other brand name tomato spikes. Well, my tomato production MORE than doubled...even though we had an early summer with no rain and monsoon rains the rest of the summer. Oh, and this was the first season that I also used the square tomato cages so they helped keep my plants dry between rains. I'll be ordering more next season and will try the vegetable food also.
