I bought this nonsoil seed starter mix for $1.00 at Walmart and started my tomato seeds in my south facing apartment window-grew like gangbusters. At 1ft high I replanted them in Dad's halfbarrel patio planter. He tried tomatoes last year there and they failed immediately. I think he had the soil too compacted because I really had to work at loosening the soil. So something began growing like a weed at the front of the barrel-large leaves. Something is eating those leaves like crazy but hasnt touched my tomato plant whose leaves are beautiful and has doubled in size in one month. We pulled this supposed weed. Is it good to plant/keep "distractions" around your tomatoes? With the weed gone, will "it" start chomping on my tomatoes leaves?
