Tomato Growing Tips
Certified Organic Tomato Seeds Produce the Best Tomatoes
From beefsteak to cherry to heirloom varieties, growing organic tomatoes with certified organic tomato seeds is one of the most satisfying organic gardening experiences you will ever have
Tomatoes grow optimally at between 65o and 85o F (daytime temp), but stop growing above 95o F. They need full sun and warm, well-drained soil and I recommend planting your certified organic tomato seeds around the date of last frost.
The modern commercial tomato has comprised quality and flavor. But, as you become more comfortable with organic gardening, you will discover how sweet, flavorful and mouth watering this juicy antioxidant can actually be.
Prune tomato plants for optimal tomato production. Your pruning strategy should be based on what you want from your tomatoes. For larger, earlier (but fewer) tomatoes, remove shoots that emerge on or beside the main stem and tie the stem to a stake or bamboo.
However, for a larger harvest, let your plants bush out and use tomato cages for support. Also, pinch off any flowers that bloom before July 4th. At harvest time, you'll feel like setting off fireworks while you enjoy the fruit of your organic gardening labor.
Tasty and Very Nutritious Tomato
Organic tomatoes in a well rounded meal or as a light low calorie snack are a rich source of vitamin C and other minerals.
