  1. You make very good and practical points in this video. All the fish, bone
    and other meal though is a bit much. However I’ll have to give this a shot.
    I grow tomatoes in pots. From two plants I had so many tomatoes I didn’t
    have an immediate use.

  2. It is such a great honor to learn your top ten secrets on how to grow and
    care for tomatoes. I agree that these important things are quite useful for
    every homeowners and enthusiast in growing tomatoes. I believe that it will
    really help to improve the growth production of the said delicious crop.

  5. Awesome. I’m just starting to get the urge to grow my own tomatoes for
    pastas and sauces, and salads…. but, man…. how I wish my area wasn’t in
    the middle of a drought. :( 

  6. Great video thanks!

  8. wow this is great learning i realy did enjow watching this video iv been
    wanting to start a garden for a while but realy never knew how

  9. Ok this year I have ready all of the ingredients needed to enrich the soil.
    I didn’t do the fresh cow manure and the compost before the winter. Can I
    use a dry organic cow manure with humus together with the kelp, cottonseed,
    fish and bone meals? If that’s ok, how much should I put in my 50 sq feet
    raised bed garden? Thanks

  10. Add 5 pounds of sun dryed tomatoes to each tomatoe plant and your plants
    will eat each other like your local familys board of directors. Mentor your
    tomatoe horn worns seeking blue jay to aim high by placing tags with the
    word high up high near high street works best!

  11. indeed he did forget. Very important to remove suckers.

  12. Wow, do I ever love your videos! I wish i had been a gardener, And i bet

    should be the garden of the world, everybody with a ‘once a week loving
    care’ to one patch. A better meeting place for people too..

  14. Hi Thanks very much for these tips. I am new to gardening , my first
    garden. Yay!!!!! With your awesome advice, I will get award winning
    tomatoes , hopefully next year! :) Can”t wait.

  15. I have followed your idea on soil prep since last fall with the cow manure.
    I added Kelp, Fish, Cottonseed and Bone Meal. Lobster Compost and Peat Moss
    ( offsetting alkaline soil )…..and I have the most MONSTEROUS crops I’ve
    ever had…at the end of June already….I have plants with 30 plus
    tomatoes already…squash the size of softballs. Just saying thanks…..and
    wow! Great advice on soil maintenance.

  16. I learned how to prevent blossom end rot but I’ve already planted my
    tomatoes. Can I add it to the weekly feed mix now that they are planted
    with the same results?
