But it's from the "International Journal of Agriculture and Crop Sciences"

"Our recipe is two handfuls of pure worm castings in a five gallon bucket of water.  Let it steep for two days, and then strain through cheese cloth into a two gallon garden sprayer.  We then like to add one and a half aspirin tablets to the spray solution. Small amounts of aspirin sprayed on plants improve their growth, sometimes remarkably. Aspirin also triggers the plants’ natural defenses against harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses.  If you'd like to read one of the many studies done on aspirin (salicytic acid) and tomato plants, here is a scholarly article"

I use a baby aspirin in the planting hole the thwart early blight, and then blend one in water mid season the thwart late blight, per Mel in the Question and Answer book. Works great.

I'm going to try this.  The article was very interesting.   I planted tomatoes late and although everything has green fruit I'm curious to see if I can notice overall faster growth as the article suggested.  The worm castings has to make a big contribution  too.  Thanks MrBooker

It would be considered a treatment,  believe.

Chop up half a dozen long green  willow leaves and then rub them round with a mortar & pestle to get the juices out  add an egg cup of water  , grind a bit more .     Viola , you have about three aspirins worth of salacylic acid , aka aspirin and it is all natural .


New season willow shoots up to about 18 inches long , chopped fine &  boiled for five min then left to infuse 2 day will also give you a natural rooting hormone liquid as well & you can store it in the fridge for 10 or so days or freeze it till needed just shake the melted infusaion to get it mixed backup  & use within a week .

you put the aspirin after dissolving in a glass or put in the sprayer , but it needs to dissolve unless it BC powder, then spray away.

 i went to get some BC powder and found it also contain caffeine  for faster delivery. so I got plain aspirin, uncoated, 325 mg.

How cool is that?  Does anyone have any information about the caffeine in bc powders?  Is that bad for the plants?  I have plenty of them around my house normally.  I know they're not very good for me, but man do they kill a headache.  Wait.... thinking . I just thought about something.  If they make plants bigger and more fruitful, I wonder if that's why I keep gaining weight??thinking Wink

OK, here goes, but I ain't promisin' anything! I can't even remember where or from who (or should I say whom? English is my second language cause I ain't got a first one yet bounce ) I learned this, I don't remember anyone growing tomatoes and corn that didn't do this. Just to give you the happy ending to the story before you read it, I put one and half aspirin crushed up and dissolved in a five gallon bucket of water and pour it around the freshly planted tomatoes and in the soil when I planted corn. Note, I have not had ANY luck with growing corn or baking bread (without a bread maker) since I moved to New Hampster, so I don't even try corn anymore. I then spray the tomatoes, I mist them with a spray bottle of the solution every week for about 6 weeks. I do not know if I am over doing it or not doing it enough, I am sure if I were to dissect the paper it would tell me. But folks, I get a headache just thinking about TRYING to decipher the incredibly thorough, extremely scientific, mathematically exacting information that a PhD in ag chemistry would probably find enjoyable. That being said, I can recommend reading this at bedtime if you suffer from insomnia. Razz If that doesn't work take two aspirin and call the doc in the morning. Rolling Eyes

Note, I tried to put it in as an image but I am not allowed to do it like a pic. So, here is the site, hopefully you can just click on it and go there.

http://ijagcs.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/1184-1187.pdf

Now that I have gone and read the new posts, I see this would probably be better in the "this sounds too simple" thread. If you have the know how, the permission, and the energy to move it over, please do. This isn't just a New England thing. rock

(NOTE: Moved per above paragraph by TD 2017/09/16)

Second revision of the the edit, this is the same article from MrBooker's thread from 2016. IF I only had seen this BEFORE I wrote my little post. Rolling Eyes MrBooker, you had this before I found it.
