Start seeds indoors if late frost is an issue. For best results and to save space train plants on stakes or wire cages.
Thin when plants are 2 inches high. Young plants need regular waterings, mature plants should be soaked deeply about every 10 days. Keep water off of plants to avoid diseases. Mulching helps to keep soil moist. Use low nitrogen fertilizer.
Harvest at the stage of ripeness that most appeals to you. Cut or gently pull fruit from the stem.
Tomatoes need an even supply of water. Erratic watering will cause blossoms to rot.
