How to Grow Good Tomatoes?

Before growing good tomatoes, and most importantly tasty ones, a number of conditions must be met.

1. Plant tomatoes in a place where they will enjoy the maximum sunlight.

2. Each bush should receive enough moisture.

3. It is necessary to properly fertilize each bush in the early stages of development and take a break in fertilization before the ovaries form, since nitrogen fertilization will prevent the ovaries from developing well.

4. In order for the flowers not to fall, but to be tied to the tomatoes, you need to help, for this several times a week until one o'clock you need to shake each bush or a separate flowering brush to pollinate the tomatoes.

5. Do not pick tomatoes too early, the longer they are bound to the bush, the better they ripen.

How to grow good tomatoes from seedlings?

Seeds need to start preparing already in January, for this you need:

- warm up the seeds at a temperature not higher than 60 degrees;

- then they all need to be placed in a 3% salt solution;

- select only those seeds that have fallen to the bottom and rinse them thoroughly;

- then place them in a solution of potassium permanganate for twenty minutes;

- remove the seeds and dry for an hour;

- then you need to soak the seeds in micronutrient fertilizer and then wrap them still wet in gauze and start hardening: for twelve hours, alternately place them in the cold, then keep at room temperature. This procedure must last at least twelve days;

- then the seeds are ready for planting, it comes out approximately in February;

- seeds are sown in prepared soil, in shallow holes and slightly sprinkled with earth, carefully moistened, covered with foil and placed in a place where the temperature does not drop below 25 degrees;

We select varieties according to growing conditions and climate. We will definitely stepchild the bushes, we give preference to quality over quantity, sometimes we leave three or four pieces on one branch.

And we experiment every year: we order about a dozen different varieties, for pickles, for salad, or we just liked the look. We take care of, fertilize, prune everything as it should be, so every year we collect a rich harvest.

This year, our spring was late, the seedlings were outgrown, I made a bed in the far corner, dug up on the boards, planted, not hoping for a harvest. I didn't look after them especially, they were slowly overgrown with weeds. In September I decided to clear this area for the winter. Imagine my surprise when I saw large, clean (and in fact, they were practically lying on the ground) tomatoes, I collected a whole bucket. So fight the weeds.

It all depends on the care. My neighbors have tried all sorts of varieties: early, determinant, indeterminate, mid-season, F1 hybrids, and their results are always below average. They think that the variety will take it all by itself. And another grandmother, who herself has been receiving seeds for twenty years, always has tomatoes for a feast for the eyes! I thought that during this time she had already bred her own variety, took seeds, but also nothing supernatural. You just need care, work! Fatigue in winter will be forgotten, and the results will delight all winter and even spring.
