Banana peel for better tomatoes?

April 21, 2010 at 10:11 PM Leave a comment

I was reading one of my many gardening magazines and there was an article about an old fashioned practice of putting a banana peel into the hole before planting your tomato plants.  You will want to cover the banana peel with a little soil before planting your tomato plants.  Something about the potassium.  She claimed it made her tomatoes taste sweeter.

I am freezing all my banana peels from now on until planting time.
