  • Summer crops want warm nights, especially tomatoes

    I can’t tell you how many people have told me that they have planted their tomatoes already… some nearly a month ago! Too early, too early! 

    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.
