How to Grow Tomatoes
- Check on your plants daily and water as needed. If the soil is damp, leave it alone. If the soil is dry and crumbly, give it a good soak.
- Pull weeds by hand everyday so that it doesn’t seem overwhelming. If weeds are too large to pull by hand, use a hoe. A good tool we like to use is the hula-ho. It’s great for cutting weeds off right below the surface of the soil.
- Take care to fertilize every two weeks or at least once a month. We use dry molasses once a month (side dressing it by sprinkling a handful around the base of the plant) and we usually feed with Garrett Juice, which is a foliar fertilizer by mixing it according to directions and spraying the leaves of the plant every two weeks.
