Hot to Grow Tomato Plants from Seed, Part 3
Shortly before we left for vacation, around June 26th, I planted my tomato plants in the ground. Since I don't have alot of space, I put them in an unused bed on the west side of the house, enclosing them in an area 3 x 6 feet. I had seen the spiral rods in stores and magazines and decided to try them this year as tomato trellises....you guide the central vine up the rod and it helps support the plant, leaving more room for other plants in tight spaces. So far it is working quite well. Oh, and I put alot of compost in the hole for each plant for extra nutrients. Stayed tuned to see how they turn out!
