|Top Ten Tips
For tomato/vegetable garden success!
1. 'Tis Better to Plant a Twenty-Five Cent Plant in a Five Dollar Hole, Rather than a Five Dollar Plant in a Twenty-Five Cent Hole - emphasizing the importance of building the proper beds.
2. Compost, Humus or Organic Matter - You say Toe-May-Toe, I say Toe-Mah-Toe… whatever you call it, it's a wonderful thing-Use it!
3. Ensure Good Drainage - with our Feast or Famine rainfall, you'll eventually see why this is so important, or you'll drown your first attempt after a gully-washer.
4. Let the Sunshine In - Pick a spot that can provide up to 6 hrs. of sunshine.. filtered light won't cut it.

6. Cheat Mother Nature -- Because of our heat, if you can start 'em early more power to you, especially if your willing to protect them on late-freeze nights.
7. Control Your Appetite - That means don't over-plant; Control that desire.
8. Feed Me Seymore!!! - Veggies are heavy feeders (Just ask the Audrey II) the compost is a good start and a nice addition throughout, but amend that feeding with some kind of fertilizer, beit granular, liquid-organic or water-soluble.
9. Keep Your Shadow in the Garden - That means get out there on a consistent basis, looking for insects, weeds and diseases. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - as the old saying goes.
10. Consistency, Consistency, Consistency - Consistent watering and consistent feeding are so critical. Don't ever allow allowing things to dry up before you water them back up.
