There's nothing like biting into a juicy, homegrown tomato!
Whether you've been gardening for years, or are just starting out, @omasgardens has great tips and tricks for planting terrific tomatoes.
Before you jump into your gardening extravaganza, don't forget to get the right gear! Oma loves our tried and true classic Western Chief Garden Play Rain Boots. These keep her feet dry and comfortable (they also match her garden 😊).
On planting day, grab three additives:
2. Epsom salt (this helps with the transition of the planting)
3. Coffee grounds
Dig a trench a little higher than the height of your pot all the way down the line where you want to plant. Spread your additives all along the base.
Remove any lower leaves of your tomato plants. When planted, the dirt should come right below the upper leaves. Dig your trench deeper if the trench line does not line up just below your upper tomato seedling leaves.
Place the plant down into the dirt and cover it with soil, mixing in the additives with it as you go.
Water, water, water!
Keep the plants well-watered for the next week while they get used to their new home.
Feed with fish emulsion within 2 days.
