    Yep, try to keep the watering down in the roots. Otherwise you'll risk developing mold, and other critters that will be harmful to your tomato's. It's always best to do deep root watering to develop strong roots which will in turn give you a strong plant, yielding more in production. Shallow watering just develops "Leggy" plants. You may get some production, but the plant will not be strong nor healthy. ;)

    Oh and try to water in the morning before the blast of the heat, otherwise you may scald your plants. xoxo

    I was told to put any food scraps, peelings, leftovers etc in my blender and liquify them and pour on my vegetable plants is this right?
