One thing that didn't seem to be mentioned about growing bigger tomatoes--BE SURE YOU PICK A VARIETY KNOWN FOR BIG TOMATOES--a Whopper or Beefsteak rather than a Better Boy, for example.

On the other hand, I don't CARE how big my tomato is. Why would I? I just want a fabulous tasting tomato.....

In some ways I agree with you, however I gotta tell ya, last yr I got a 2lb roma and was ecstatic over it. My thoughts were it wouldnt take too many of those to fill a jar of pasta sauce, salsa, or a kettle for ketchup. Seems the years I grow enough big ones I have enough to can all 3 up for winter. Yum.

We're about to plant ours, and I have to remember to try the gypsym instead of rock minerals and NO epsom salts anymore after the article on here. This is a valuable site. Ive learned 2 important things after couple months on here. Happy season, hope yours are all tasty this yr. and no problems. I do love learning something new every year.
