Tomato, tomatoe. Yeah I think we're saying the same thing now too :) Great

Klaus, how soon before you began to see the rotting on the plants in the
sand? 6 months? A year? How deep was that sandbed? What types of
fertilizers were you adding? I'm wondering if there wasn't a micronutrient
issue that stopped their ability to maintain the barrier between the root
fibers and the sulfurous surroundings the anaerobes were creating.
