Dear tomato growers,

It sounds like this year we are going to have another great time sharing
information (tongue-in-cheek).  Instead of asking 'how' for further
clarification, we have the big put-down and attacking the messemger which
shuts people up.  Most of us are not up to this behavior.

There is a lot of independent research substantiating the effects of
mycorrhiza and the advantages of augmenting what is already present in yourt
soil.  You can find lots if information just by typing 'Mycorrhiza' in your
'search' blank.  This would make for a much more enlightened discussion.
