Growing Tomato Plants from Seed

Are you a tomato lover like me? I LOVE me some home grown tomatoes! I can never get enough!

Every year I grow my tomatoes from seed, and have a lot of great tips here in my Seed Sowing 101: Planting Tomato Seed article.

I also go over how I transplant tomato seedlings in my article How to Transplant Tomato Seedlings.

Be sure to keep reading, to learn how to get yourself some FREE tomato plants!

Tips for Growing Tomatoes

Tomatoes are a little bit tricky to grow, so I have some tips here in these related articles:

Simple Easy DIY Tomato Support System – A great tutorial on how to support those ever growing indeterminate tomatoes. These guys can get out of hand quickly, so it is a good idea to have a plan on how you are going to support the plants, before they even go in the ground!

I have found that this support system, works really well for me year after year. Some other things, like those tomato cages, don’t. They fall over pretty quickly or the string used in the weave method breaks. This system is sturdy and rock solid, but does take some effort well before your tomato plants need it.

Tomatoes do better in the long run, if you prune them. (Hint: this is how you get the free tomato plants too!) Especially near the ground where viruses and bacteria can splatter up onto the foliage and create problems for your plants.

It is also a good idea to thin them out a bit, for better air circulation to prevent fungus and mold and disease from developing on the plants. For tips on pruning, please see my article How to Prune Tomato Plants (coming very soon!)

Freezing your Tomato Harvest

Why would you want to freeze your tomato harvest? There are many reasons, actually! Especially if you grow as many tomatoes as I do! It really makes life so much simpler and less stressful, than trying to rush and can everything before they go bad. Check out my article Benefits of Freezing Your Tomato Harvest to see all the other reasons!
