Vegetable garden questions

Zone 99109 | ssmi26 added on February 6, 2017 | Answered

I have read several articles about putting Epsom salts, egg shells and coffee grounds in your garden. Do those items really work in vegetable gardens? I heard before about putting some Epsom salts in ground prior to planting the tomatoes. Just wondered if any of these are true? I would think just good soil and any additional amendments would be enough for a good crop. Please advise. Thanks!
