Guerilla Gardening - the Natural Way

Soda pop is a power lunch for every green, growing thing in your yard. That's because it supplies a jolt of carbon dioxide, which plants need to convert the sun's energy into food. To serve the pop, surround your plants with a 3" layer of chunky mulch like bark chips, gravel, or coca bean hulls OR add directly to water.

Then twice a week during the growing season, pour a can of soda pop right through the mulch. Any flavor will do, as long as it's good and fizzy. Buy regular soda. The sugar in the soda will also sweeten the tomatoes on your vines.
