All tomato seed packs come with approximately 30-45 seeds per pack. 
Plenty of seeds for several years, if stored properly.
I take a pinch and quick count them. Nothing fancy.

All my tomato seeds were hand collected from The Rusted Garden,
unless marked clearly BULK SEEDS.  The chances of cross-pollination are very low as tomato flowers typically self-pollinate. However, I can't guarantee 100% you won't get a cross.
The chance of this happening is really, really, really low.

1. My Neem Oil separated and looks like it has clumps. What do I do?

Your Neem Oil is fine and it will do that at certain temperatures. In fact, if you store it in a refrigerator it will become a solid. You fix it by letting it sit in warm tap water for about 15 minutes. It will be as good as new. Check out the video below for details.

2. I can't find recipe on how to use the Neem Oil. How do I use it?

Check out the above video for details on how to make some basic sprays. Always... always... always test spray new products on a few vegetable plant leaves before you cover an entire plant. You can also check out the internet of for additional recipes.

My First Neem Oil Bottling:


  1. Gary...great website, video's and info. The late blight you are experiencing is what we have here in the southern states all the time. It starts when the warm humid air comes in and by mid August most plants have been affected and have shriveled. No plant including the hybrids with resistance seem to be immune. Spraying w/chems isn't practical since they have to be sprayed when temps are below 90 which doesn't happen here in August. In addition to late blight there is early blight, alternaria stem canker and a host of others that cause about the same thing...deteriorated plants by mid summer. I try to plant early with early varieties in hopes of getting my production by mid July.

  2. Have any picture of late blighted tomatoes? I found I can spray pretty well for early blight. But I had one plant wilt away. Spraying at 90+ degrees with my baking soda burned my tomato. Under 90 degrees it was fine. Yes the heat is an issue. I found I can use wettable sulphur at higher temperatures. But the blights come. I can slow em, not beat em... but I end up with large harvests.
