I am a producer/director in Los Angeles and completed the library of works called ORGANIC GARDENING MADE EASY by Lee O’Hara.

I am about to deliver the new DVD called the ORGANIC TOMATO showing everyone from seed to harvest how to grow a tomato organically. The main thing is the soil and the DVD shows the entire process including when to use non fat dry milk. The website that accompanies my work is

Thanks for having a website where we can share on. I wish you all the very most healthy best.

What does one do with the non fat dry milk? Love the lack of uniformity in the organic ones, and the flavour is usually far more interesting than supermarket clones. lol.

Organic tomatoes and non fat dry milk

Beefmasters are ugly but taste AMAZING. The non fat dry milk adds calcium to the soil and keeps dry rot from forming. Its the only thing that needs to be fed the plants before you stop picking off the buds allowing the tomatoes to form. It is a pleasure moment to taste the final product.

Hello Kathy, welcome here at GOY. Very interesting subject. I am just wondering if it doesn't get sloggy and smelly once you water the tomatoes and that dried milk will turn into milk. Will it not grow mold on? Perhaps a silly question, but this is completely new to me, I have never heard of skim dried milk for tomato plants. Can't you just put calcium underneath? Those tommy atoes look sumptious, delicious and I can smell them a mile away. You grow them outdoors don't you?
