Guide to Growing Tomatoes

We have a great bounty of tomatoes right now. Here's how we got there:
Build a support system using 1x2 posts vertically and horizontally
Use the support system to tie off the plants with garden twine or panty hose
Prune lower leaves to provide air circulation and more sunlight to the lower fruit.
Even, regular watering of about 2" per week, bi-weekly top dressing with compost and 6 hours of sunlight will ensure a harvest of juicy, plump tomatoes like these cherry tomato variety.
