Your Questions About Tomato Growing Secrets

Charles asks…

Secret to growing tomatoes?

What is the secret to growing big fat juice tomatoes?

Martin Boyle answers:

To grow the largest fruit possible, then it is good to choose a giant type. Some varieties are larger than others and some have more flavor than others.

So choosing the variety makes a big difference.


-dig the holes really big and use some compost or manure (about 1/3 compost or such)

-use a big cage that can support the plant and that you can reach through and pick the tomatoes out of

-tomatoes should get lots of food but when it is time to make tomatoes, then don’t give the plants any more nitrogen, otherwise the leaves will be lots but the fruits will be few.

-tomatoes could use a little extra calcium if the ends of their fruits get rotten (blossom end rot)

-picking off some of the flowers or fruit will help the ones that you leave on there to become especially big.

-ripening the tomatoes ‘on the vine’ helps the flavor to be better; tomatoes need warm nights to ripen on the vine and also red mulch helps (but bugs can hide under plastic mulch so watch out)

Joseph asks…

Any secrets about growing tomatoes & herbs Chamomile, Lavender, Frankincense (Jesus’ special one)?

I started tomatoes they are about 2″ high but alot of stalk and just a few little leaves on top.
I didn’t plant the herb seeds yet.

and I did plant the seed of Jesus into my heart, when i repented of sins and let Jesus in to be my best friend.
Revelation 3:19&20 “I love you and knock on your heart door to come in and be your friend when you repent quickly of sin and ask me in.”

Jesus helped me as born Jewish to be my Messiah, only he is spoken of as without sin, it was needed for him to fulfill the lamb sacrifice requied to forgive sins Moses tells in Leviticus 17:11 “Without the shedding of blood there is no atonement for sins.”

Isaiah 9:6 “Unto us a child is born a son is given, and he will be mighty God, wonderful counselor, the everlasting father and the prince of peace.”

Isaiah 52:13-53:12 He will be exalted, but first marred more than any man and lay down his life to forgive our sins.”

Well do you have any help for tomatoes or herbs or spiritual seed too?

Martin Boyle answers:

My grandfather always planted tomatoes deep – used a post hole digger. Into the hole he added manure and then pelleted calcium. You only want the top part of the plant to be showing above ground when you are done. I’ve never seen so many tomatoes using his method.
