I'm usually just a lurker & am a novice gardener.  This year will only be my 
second.  Had alot of fun growing tomatoes last year & received an ad for 
something called tomato boosters.  They are a black plastic collar that has a 
reservoir surrounding the whole that the tomato plant comes through. They say 
the reservoir is made for drip irrigation, that is has a cup for granular 
fertilization and that the collar helps with cutworms & weeds.  They sell for 
6 for $9.00.  The price sounds reasonable.  Has anyone used them?
