Got a question....though it doesn't involve coffee grounds: My tomatoes plants are 6 feet tall....some tomatoes on them around 2 feet off the ground and a few blooms at the top, but they aren't producing like I had hoped. Should I prune them back to around 4 feet?

They are a wonderful soil conditioner and though others tell me roses can't grow here....... mine do well. Lots of grounds for them as well as the blueberries, raspberries, tomatoes, strawberries, gooseberries, currants, rhubarb, compost pile, new garden spots!!!!
Really does well to loosen my heavy clay soil too.
That which I Will to happen in truth, I will put action behind to achieve and the Lord will help me if I ask IN BELIEF!

Since coffee grounds (after brewing) are only slightly acidic, you will probably not over do it on acid loving plants. In fact they will probably not have enough effect to drop the PH very much. I use them as part of the nulch around my blueberries azalias, etc. to help keep the PH down, but I also have to add sulfer to keep it low enough due to all the lime stone around hear. A PH meter is a handy tool if you have acid loving plants, You can pick one up for less than $15 at a lot of nurseries.
