GARDEN GUY'S TOMATO TIPS

Types:
Determinate tomatoes: Stop producing fruit
Indeterminate: Keep producing
Grafted tomatoes: Disease resistant, abundant growths
Heirloom: Open pollination
Hybrid: Cross between 2 varieties

When:
Grow them now! But keep them indoors. For outside planting, the soil temperature should be 55 degrees, so you may need to hold off until June.

Pro tip:
Tomatoes thrive on compost in the ground. Tomato Maker fertilizer is calcium-fortified and can be added to the soil as well.
