Practically everyone likes to eat a good tomato. Perhaps some people like tomato to spread on bread and eat a good tomato bread (payam tumàquet) as in Catalonia, or a comfit tomato or decorating salads, as is the case with a funny cherry tomato. Or in healthy diets, eat cherry tomatoes raw. The same can happen with tomato jams, sauces but what if you can do it with your own tomatoes, freshly picked from the garden?

We will explain the most basic and what is necessary to be able to plant tomatoes through seeds. Without leaving a fortune to prepare a garden, or buying large seedbeds or complications.

Instructions

  1. To follow to the letter and to the letter when the best time to plant tomatoes, the really ideal thing is will be in spring. But be careful, because this vegetable, the tomato, can generally be grown throughout the year if you have patience and some care.
  2. In fact, it can be grown by the seed method and done in the fall and winter and the tomatoes can grow without problems if they are protected from the cold. The most appropriate thing will be in these cases, to be able to grow them inside a greenhouse. In this way, the heat of the greenhouse will help it to flower earlier and, on the other hand, it will protect it from the cold, frost, rain and excessive water, etc.
  3. Also in case you love to eat tomatoes, you can try to plant different types of tomato.  Yes, different kinds of this vegetable. Because there is some that, for example, are suitable for spring, others for summer, for autumn, etc.
  4. The different types of tomato that can be found are very diverse, because there are many, but the most used or the most famous, thus a priori, can be: the Raff tomato, the cherry tomato, the vine tomato, the black tomato, the Komati.
  5. Keep in mind that each tomato has its properties and that there are some that, for example, withstand bad weather much better and can be sown and flower during autumn and even in winter, others cost much more because they need sun and heat… and in When it comes to tomatoes and their kinds, some are better suited for one thing or another. From the typical tiny tomato that is ideal for decorating, the tomato for bread, the tomato for salads, the tomato for cooking, the tomato for making preserves and sauces, etc.
  6. There are also some tomatoes that are more expensive than others. We could say that the cheapest tomato is the cherry tomato and of the most expensive tomatoes, the pink tomato or also the so-called Raff tomato.
  7. Well, now we are going to put ourselves in the situation where you want to have your own garden in your house or even, you can also have it in small pots, in pots or greenhouses (which is now fashionable and a trend).
  8. Depending on the time in which the seeds are planted, it should be taken into account whether to make a summer or winter garden(so called because of the inclement weather). In case, for example, you decide to make a spring or summer garden, it is more suitable to make a garden that is outdoors. In the case of orchards in autumn and winter, the ideal is to make the orchard inside a greenhouse. In this way, the harvest will be protected from frost, from the cold (which does not go well with the growth of this vegetable), from intense rains, the air…
  9. With excessive cold or very intense winds, the tomato plants will die or spoil. And with cold or frost, they freeze and die. Therefore, if you have the plantation already done but obviously, you cannot place a greenhouse or you cannot buy it or you do not have the space to place it, do not worry. Something that can be done and that serves as if it were almost the same is to place plastic and cover the tomato plants with it. With this you will get the vegetables to be hot and avoid as much as possible that they freeze or the rain hits the leaves and the tomatoes can split or fall. But of course, for example, hail, perhaps, you will always have to have something prepared; something that can be placed on the tomato plants and in this way, avoids impacts on the tomatoes as much as possible.
  10. You have to calculate that preparing a tomato garden and that the seeds begin to sprout, will depend on the season (in summer with the heat it takes less time to sprout) but approximately, you will be able to begin to see its yellow flowers (the process is seeds, tomato, yellow flowers and when the flower falls there is the small vegetable that is the tomato) at three weeks.
  11. To plant through seeds, you can use a seedbed or not. Surely in a garden or flower shop they will tell you yes and they will sell you a lot of products for you to buy. But it is not necessary. You can do the seedbed yourself at home. Or plant it directly yourself in a pot or pot. Yes, directly. No problem.
  12. You buy a land that has, yes, a good composting that the land to be able to be with a high percentage of potassium in its fertilizer. If you are a little lost on these issues, pay attention when buying the land, that the sack is land to grow vegetables. In these cases, the land already has its fertilizer and in this way you save yourself from doing it yourself and buying more products from the account or burning the seeds due to excess fertilizer.
  13. Once the tomato plant grows, there will usually be leaves that are dry and old. In this case, to try to avoid pests and incidentally, to make the tomato plant stronger and by way of pruning, the ideal thing is to cut, eliminate, remove these leaves. In this way, the base of the tomato plant will grow stronger and higher and the rest of the branches will not take away the strength of the tomato plant and larger and healthier tomatoes will emerge.
  14. Depending on the time in which the seeds are planted, it should be taken into account whether to make a summer or winter garden(so called because of the inclement weather). In case, for example, you decide to make a spring or summer garden, it is more suitable to make a garden that is outdoors. In the case of orchards in autumn and winter, the ideal is to make the orchard inside a greenhouse. In this way, the harvest will be protected from frost, from the cold (which does not go well with the growth of this vegetable), from intense rains, the air…
  15. As the seeds begin to sprout and the tomato plant grows, you can place sticks to straighten or guide it. When it grows and is tall, you will have to tie it to a cane or sticks. You can use anything that is a little sturdy so it doesn’t twist (broomstick, wooden stick, reeds, etc.). The same to tie it do not tie it too tight so as not to choke the tomato plant or break it. A rope, a cord, a rubber, etc.
  16. Regarding the type of irrigation, it needs a moderate irrigation and never has the soil flooded or an excess of water. In addition, if you do, you can cause it to fill with fungi or the leaves wither and you have pests on the tomato plants. In summer, with the heat, the ideal thing is to water it if you can, before the strong sun rises in the morning. And in the late afternoon, if you notice that the soil is very dry again, water again.

Tips

A trick that many people think never works out, but it is wrong and it can be achieved, and also for free, is to take advantage of buying seeds and use the seeds of a tomato that you already have. Those seeds or a tomato that you have used, bury it inside the earth (not too deep) with a finger down is enough. And water a little and let the sun give it. After two weeks, you should see how the seeds begin to bloom. And if you have succeeded, congratulations, in a few weeks you will have your own tomato plant.
