Tomatoes: varieties, cultivation techniques, etc ...




by Biobomb » 14/06/21, 23:01

We appreciate this fruit / vegetable. But we also have the spirit of laziness.
What are our ways of cultivating it, of managing it?
Do we sow its seeds, which we perhaps reproduce ourselves?
Have we learned to graft them? Have we measured the difference, for a given species, between a grafted plant and an ungrafted one?
Should it always be red in color? is greenhouse cultivation / protection the panacea? Are hybrid varieties to be preferred?
Are we aware of its requirements: soil preparation, repeated or not repeated watering, suppression of gourmets, staking, fattening, treatments, perhaps preventive measures, care in the event of attacks or diseases, etc.
And of course for you the best one?

Hello,
This year I try not to tutor.
It worked well last year.

I do the plants myself, I sow a few seeds per bucket and let everything come, I don't select the best plant so I end up with a small grove of about 5 feet per bucket.
I don't cut gourmets either, I only cut tomatoes! : Lol:

When it grows with tomatoes, the weight causes the branches to bend and touch the ground and it starts up again vertically.
The plants in the center are a little staked by the lateral plants which lie down.
I had tomatoes that hit the ground, it's BRF, there was no disease.
I imagine it all depends on the weather, which was good for the tomatoes last year.

The 4 plants that I had selected and staked (in the old fashioned way) on about twenty feet gave practically nothing.
I plant outside, on BRF and I water.
I also put nettle in the bottom of the hole in the plantation which is reputed to prevent diseases and I don't have any but the weather is everything.
I am considering a greenhouse to extend the season and protect myself from the vagaries of the weather.

The tomatoes are probably smaller when planted in a grove, but there is more than enough.
I plant Saint Peter with a deliciously sweet taste
and black from Crimea.

Too lazy, last year I didn't make the seeds.
I am motivated to make them this year because I believe in the adaptation of seeds to the soil : Arrow: epigentic

For planting in a grove, I was inspired by nature, when a tomato falls to the ground, the seeds remain grouped and it gives a small grove that the slugs loved in spring!
Too bad, I would have liked to see what it gives then.

Hello,

Yesterday youtube offers me a video on the winding of tomato leaves and as I do not know, I keep aside.
This morning, a trip to the vegetable garden and I have the problem on some feet! : Lol: ou :(
It doesn't sound that bad.

For the tomatoes,
I made about fifteen plants with indeterminate habit that I grow along a fence to support them - Rose de berne, marmande, joie de la table, beafsteak - and a dozen bushes without a guardian - siberian and rio grande .

I do my seedlings but this year many have vegetated and withered away :( so I had to buy plants to complete - andean retort. I do with purchased or collected seeds.

The plants grow on the sunny side, on brf covered with 20cm of hay in the fall, it really limits watering (among other things). I don't have a greenhouse.

At the foot of the tomatoes I plant marigolds and basil. at the moment the puny seedlings are catching up with the plants in the garden center. Some flowers appear but it is rather late, especially the Siberian which I thought very early ... well it always depends on various factors including the weather : Wink:

Hello,

For my part, I made my sowings in February (100% have emerged) and I planted 5 plants in April (2 rose of bern, 2 black of Crimea and 1 heart of beef) and I gave some to the neighborhood, to family, friends ...

For the moment it's growing well, I made my tomato cages. I just cut the leaves that touch the ground.

I sprayed a mixture of garlic decoction and black soap (black aphids).

The first blacks from Crimea are coming (still green for the moment).

Fortunately I didn t put any flax straw in this place : Wink:

Goods.
For the whole vegetable garden, I put grass mowing that I let a little dry, then BRF as ripe as possible, if not fresh BRF but if possible in autumn.
I note Didier's idea in the event of a hard blow (nitrogen hunger): peeing.: Wink:

To those who do not prune their tomato plants: here, I have flowers on gourmets which peak at 1m.
