Get the most out of your home grown tomato garden.
- Choose a bright spot to start your beds. A location that gets at least 10 hours of light in the summer is the best for growing this ever popular fruit/ vegetable.
- Prepare the beds by turning the soil and amend with organic matter. We often suggest Coast of Maine’s Lobster compost blend. (you can purchase here in the garden center).
- Water deeply, but infrequently starting off at once a week until the height of the summer where you may then water every 5 days.
- Keep your tomatoes coming all summer long… to eliminate having all of your harvest coming at once, three weeks after planting your first crop plant more.
