Do you talk to your vegetables?
Is there any truth to the rumor that a good crop of corn is all ears and that makes them good listeners too?

More BS about tea, couldn't be all that sunshine and the humus soils....
John's a great guy and his products work to develop soils, but the giant vegetable link is BS!

23 hours a day of sun in a climate with the cool weather that cabbage family plants love all summer long - sounds like a perfect recipe for gigantic cabbage heads to me. "

It will work for pumpkins as well. It surely won't work for watermelons. But, one might ask, who is going to eat all that cabbage?
