Tomatoes like a nice warm area in full sun, and need at least 8 hours of sunlight a day, or they get spindly and produce little mature fruit.

They like soil that has a pH of 5.5 - 6.8, is fertile, deep, well-drained, and that is rich in organic matter. If the soil stays soggy where you want to plant, build a raised bed.

You can feed your tomatoes with a 5-5-5 or 10-10-10 early in the season when you first plant them, and then again in mid-season when they begin to produce.
