Gardening in South Florida - Zone 10 - Tomatoes

Any fellow South Florida gardeners out there that want to help me with some advice on Tomatoes?

I had an awful problem with those fat green caterpillars stripping my plants from stem to stern last year.

I know I can buy a book, look on-line etc. but would love some natural pesticide hints on how to just start out with container gardening in humid, hot south florida this spring.

  • I don't know if this will help in Florida, but we have lived in Utah, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Oregon....I have always used the same thing on my tomatoes. During the summer I wash a lot of my dishes by hand using a big dishtub..when I am done I splash/pour the dirty/sudsy water on my tomatoes. My Mamo used to do this...she said the soap keeps the bugs away and food particles in the water fertilize. I actually do this on most of my garden items.
