Tomato Planting Tips

Tomatoes are touchy about getting too much rain or water overhead. First of all, plant the tomatoes as deeply as you can but not with the leaves touching the ground. In between the plants, bury 4 pint plastic milk containers. However before burying them, punch holes all over, well spaced holes. Fill them with water so they are watered from below. Make a teepee shaped clear plastic cover and stake on one side so you can refill water and early fertilizer.

Hi Bev. I'm near Chilliwack (Rosedale). Nice to hear from someone local! We moved here a year ago and all of out tomato plants went down to either fusarium or verticillium wilt in last years garden. I'm going to try growing in another part of the garden but if it happens again, I will just grow them in containers.
