It is Not Too Late to Plant Tomatoes

June 22, 2018

We are picking lots of tomatoes now and loving every minute of it! If you love fresh tomatoes as much as us, you can plant now for a second harvest you will be picking right up until frost. Many garden centers have plants available now. Here is a link to Tomato plant variety info from Bonnie Plants for plants which are widely available in garden centers.

My wife is holding a bowl of Sun Gold and Cherry Bomb tomatoes!

Pick a location where tomatoes have not been grown for the past several years (this helps prevent diseases) or plant them in a container. If you are planting in your native soil add a couple of inches of fresh compost to your existing soil prior to planting. I like Miracle Gro Organic Choice Garden Soil (click here for info). If you are planting in a container I suggest using Miracle Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix (click here for info). And don’t forget to feed your plants. I like Miracle Gro Nature’s Care Plant Food in my garden (click here for info), or Osmocote Flower and Vegetable Plant Food for my containers (click here for info).

This video is guaranteed to get you in the mood to plant yourself a couple of tomato plants! It features a real toe-tapper by Guy Clark along with some mouth-watering tomato photos. Enjoy!
