Grandpas Tips for a Successful Garden, Fertilizing your Tomatoes for Free and Propagating Grapes

As many of you know my Grand parents are a huge part of the reason I love to garden. They are great mentors and have such a wealth of knowledge that I have been lucky enough to have shared with me. Some of my most cherished memories are gardening with my parents and grandparents.

This last summer when in Ontario I spent some time interview my Grandpa Legaree about his garden. Some of you whom have been following my garden adventures since the summer of 2013 may remember him from the grapes he gave me that I now grow in my garden. I am so very proud of them.

I thought today I would share some of Grandpas best tips for a successful garden! For Grandpas responses to the below questions you will have to tune into the video above. I think in this case the responses are best left in his words.
