Answer: Tomatoes are easy to grow if you follow a few basics: -Select seedlings that suit your needs for salad, canning, making sauce or eating fresh; look for kinds that are disease-resistant. -Select a site that is in full sun and enriched with lots of organic matter, and is well-drained. -Set up some type of support for the plants--stakes or tomato cages--when you transplant the seedlings. Transplant when the soil and air temperature are warm and all danger of frost is past. -After the transplants get established, mulch them well. -Side dress with a 5-10-10 fertilizer when the first fruits appear. -Keep the plants evenly watered at all times. -Watch for tomato pests, including insects and disease.
