    When it comes to spring fever, the tomato is most abused. Gardeners just can’t wait to get out and dig, which is understandable, but when it comes to tomatoes, it is best to be patient.

    Tomatoes love two things:  good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past, consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.

    I wasn’t surprised to hear from her. But I was surprised to hear what she had to say.
