what to put in tomato holes?

What and how much do you put in your tomato holes? I hear of putting in a fishhead, egg shells, asprin, epsom salt, powdered milk, etc.

So what do you use and how much of it in each hole?

Marling, just looked at your site. Sounds like you have a nice setup around there. I noticed your little tip on NPK. So for flowers and phosphorus, would that be true for fruit as well? Like the more phosphorus possibly the more tomatoes or beans or corn etc? Like I'm assuming nitrogen would be better on things like lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.

I knew root vegetables liked the Potassium, but I never know what to put on other veggies and also what to put around my flowers like roses, butterfly bushes, daylilies, etc.

After digging the hole, I toss in about a teaspoon or 2 of Mater Magic and a couple handfuls of compost. I then mix it up good and flood the hole with water and then wait until the water drains out of the hole. In goes the tomato plant.
