Katenka's tomatoes are like a lifesaver for me. Every year I plant several bushes and always with a harvest. The bushes are usually all strewn with tomatoes, they are not large, but very cute: dense, even, without flaws. They start singing early, bear fruit all summer. If there is no time, I don’t remove my stepsons, the harvest only increases from this.

Simple tips for growing a tomato in the country

Accelerate the ripening of fruits, improve the formation of ovaries, you can use food waste: milk diluted in water, juice from meat, whey. Experienced gardeners recommend watering tomato bushes with them. Watering with such food waste will partially replace fertilizing with organic fertilizers.

If you want a strong tomato bush that bears fruit all summer long, plant the seedling bush in the hole not directly, but at an angle. Additional roots will form on the stem, the more powerful the tomato root, the stronger the plant, the higher the yield.

Excessive dampness of the air in the greenhouse - late blight, apical rot and other diseases of tomatoes. You can reduce humidity with the help of regular ventilation and mulching of the beds with hay, straw or dried lawn grass.

Afraid of nitrates - use a simple way to reduce them in tomatoes, a day before harvesting, water the tomato beds abundantly with running water.
