How to Grow Tomatoes
I read with interest the article by fruit, bud should.: be left.: This in
Mr. Jones Which appeared in a . recent j creases the yield of the plants. The
suckers are pulled off this sucker as
issue ot ibe Waynesville Mountain
eer concerning his method of pro
ducing tomatoes. I noted that he
practices suckering, a practice which
I, too, have found to be well worth,
I -. also . like the practice of
staking tomatoes Which improves the
quality and appearance of the fruit
This keeps them up off the ground and
prevents so much blistering and scald-I
ing which so often occurs when the
vines are left on the ground.
Soon after the tomatoes are" set;
in their permanent places theyshould
be staked by driving a stake about five
feet long near them. As soon as it
can be done after staking them they!
are tied to the stakes. This should be,
done before the plants fall over on
the ground or crooked plants will be
formed thus making it hard to tie
them to the stakes successfully. Af
ter this they should be suckered and
tied as often as necessary, which
during good growing weather is every
week. If allowed to go longer than
this the plants will become crooked
and hard to tie. A soft string should
be used with the same loop reaching
around both stake and plant. i
The sucker just under the first!
well as the rest of the plant. The
tying and suckereing are continued
until the vines reach the top of the
sticks In producing commercial to
matoes it is often advisable to top the
plants when they reach the top of
Another practice in growing toma
toes I have found to be well worth
wntie is mulching. 1 his conserves
moisture and prevents the growth of
weeds and grass and results m &
better yield of a better grade of to
matoes. It also extends to the har
vesting period. After the tomatoes,
have been worked several time mukh
with straw putting it in between the
rows and between the plants in the
row. It is better to use partially rot
ted straw if it can be secured. If this
is not available ure any straw at
hand. It should be from two to six
inches deep and should be evenly
spread over the ground.
I believe any one producing toma
toes will find it to their interest to
stake sucker, and mulch plants. :
