Tomatoes and their need for water

2.12M Views
I started May 28th planting 4 tomatoes around a garbage can with holes drilled in the bottom rim and a second row up about 10 inches. I buried the can to where the top holes just barely were above the ground, put in two shovels full of compost, then I fill the can up with water ever 2 days and tried not to water the leaves.
These four plants are now 5 ft 4 inches in less that a month and a half and loaded with green tomatoes and about a hundred sets of tomato blossoms.

    And put in a "BANANA PEELS {skin} & CRUSHED EGG SHELLS" Mid way in the soil to feed your plants for the summer (banana for potassium & egg shells for the calcium" FOR A "abundant supply."
