Re: How to Grow Beefsteak Tomatoes

Ohhhh my..... I can just TASTE the tomatoes now. They are by far my favorite food to grow, and nothing is better than a juicy BLT with Hellmann's mayo. I'm switching from tomato cages to rings of wire fencing this year. I find that the store-bought cages blow over too easily during thunderstorms.

Tip for the suburbs: I mix lawn grass clippings into the soil before I plant my tomatoes. The decomposition gives the seedlings nutrients plus a little extra heat.
