A Cautionary Tale About Infomercials Promising Great Tomatoes

Dear Tomato Grower,

In the fall, William and Joann moved into the home next to us. After watching some programs on TV, they wanted to grow tomatoes with minimum work preparing the garden. They saw a TV ad for a new product that promised Great Heirloom Tomatoes with little effort. As they were new to gardening they were excited and wanted to try this product.

They asked if they could share in our garden to grow great tomatoes with the information they would get from the TV product. We said yes, then they quickly ordered the product and once it arrived they began to plant their crop.

They followed the TV program by digging a small hole and placing the planting system into the ground.

The first week everything grew fine,

the week after they began to see that their plants weren’t standing as tall as they had been. Also they noticed the leaves were starting to turn yellow. This meant that their plants were beginning to die.

As an experienced farmer we wanted to head off trouble before it started, so we went and talked to them.

So together we dug up the plants and re-transplanted them in the manner in which we had success. This was to dig deeper holes, use compost, and water more frequently as the problem was two-fold. The roots were bound up with no place to grow in their special container and not received proper water or nutrition.

Within a week the plants greened up and were beginning to thrive. At harvest they had delicious tomatoes which they then enjoyed for dinner.

My Growing History

The first time I grew tomatoes was in 1968.  I have always enjoyed the flavor of fresh juicy tomatoes, and when I had the opportunity to start growing them, I was excited about the prospects of always having great tomatoes to grow and eat.

The first plants I grew did great for about 1 week.  Not only did the tomato plants start growing fast, I could taste the flavor of the tomatoes in my mind.  They were going to be great!  After the first week, things took a turn for the worse though.  My tomato plants leaves started turning yellow.  Thinking that maybe I did not give them enough water, I increased the amount of water that I was giving them.  No luck, now I had droopy yellowing tomato plants.

There was no internet then, and since I was about 1 hour away from the library, I had to figure out what the heck to do.  I had to learn from an expert!  My Grandma loved to garden, and she gave me some great advice.  When I went to school, I asked a teacher what they thought.   After untangling the roots, and placing better compost on the tomato plants, over half of the plants that I had started, began to come around.  The other half, a learning experience that I have not had to repeat!

Have you ever felt the same way as I did then?  I thought that I had lost the entire crop of tomatoes, and needed some guidance from someone who had been there.  I had spent a good part of my income from working on the farm across the road from us, and losing was not easy.

Now, I know the correct way and the tricks that I have learned along the way to not only recognize how to grow great tomato plants, but also understand and stop problems from happening through experience and time growing great tomatoes!

The experiences that I have had will help you to start right from the beginning, and allow you to learn from my experience.  I will take you on a path to success of growing your tomatoes and how to spot potential problems.. The same things that I wish that knew when I was watching my tomatoes die.

  • Three immediate actions steps to take when you see yellow leaves on your plant
  • Knowing exactly what buy at the nursery so your tomatoes get a fighting chance to grow strong and tall.
