    Get it off the ground by staking it and tieing it up. Remove suckers that form in the "V" of the branches. Water at least once a week, put it where it gets full sun. The blooms won't "set" if it's over 95 degrees, wait till it cools down.

    Some type of tomatoes are determinate...determend to ripen all at once. These are the varieties good for canning up salsa or tomatoe sauces. Once they ripen the plant is done. And will not produce more tomatoe.

    Then there are the indeteminate types, they will produce thru out the season, but usually not in any large quantity at once. Tomatoes grow on a vine, you need to
    supply a proper support for them. Keep them off the ground.
