    My tomato seedlings have just been repotted today into individual cow pots and given their first fertilizer.  I’m noticing the leaves a tad yellow before I did this.  Wasn’t there a spray mixture you told me about that helps green them up?  Was it epsom salt mixture?  I’m drawing a blank.

    Steep yes 1 T Epsom Salts to 1 gallon of water.  The Magnesium should green them up in a few days.  Mine even in the greenhouse are looking the same way.  It is on the list to do.

    Thank you Wilderness.  I had a milk just just about empty so used it to make that mixture this morning.  Sprayed the tomatoes and the pepper seedlings both.  I hope it works.

    Good to know!  Epsom Salts sure does wonders for a lot of things.  I always have that and Borax on hand for many of their great uses.  My Grandmother would be proud of me!

    I plant my tomatoes and peppers with a mixture of powdered milk and epsom salts. Prevents blossom end rot too.

    I’m seeing a bit of improvement.  The newest growth on the tomatoes is green but leaves that turned yellow are not changing back to green.

    My bottom leaves usually yellow and I pinch them off cause I bury them deeper each time I transplant. Did they get dry? I noticed if mine get dry from neglect from me LOL they’ll yellow. I had some that were a foot tall last year that I stripped every leaf except the top ones off. Figured it was just sucking the life out of it trying to repair those leaves.
