Watched a gardening program on TV recently, which featured the garden of a Greek lady who was growing every vegetable she needed. She had a terrific crop of tomatoes, and revealed her secret: Prior to planting out her home raised seedlings, she spread out and raked in a good handful of ASPIRIN. The show's presenter was amazed, and at a complete loss to explain why the aspirin appeared to be so beneficial - the old lady couldn't explain either. I, usually a mine of totally useless information, am completely stumped on this one. Can anyone provide a clue as to why this should be so?
