Now here’s a neat little trick that will help you grow sweeter tomatoes at home! Simply sprinkle some baking soda around your tomato plants to harvest better-tasting tomatoes.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Test your soil beforehand. Don’t add baking soda if your soil is already alkaline because you’ll be drastically changing the pH levels.
2. Sprinkle a small amount of baking soda around the plant when your tomatoes are about one inch in diameter. Repeat again when they’re about half-grown.
3. Remember to try the baking soda on a single plant first so you can see the results before applying to all of your tomato plants.
The reason why baking soda works is because it changes the pH levels on your tomato leaves—and this helps stop the formation of leaf spots and early tomato blight. So baking soda not only yields delicious tomatoes, but actually also prevents diseases from affecting your plants!
