Tomatoes in Tucson
Next spring will be my second season of backyard tomato gardening in Marana. Last season was a great learning season, but without much success fruit-wise. Would love to get tips and ideas from others in this area who have had success with backyard tomatoes. Last year I used large containers. This year I will use framed raised beds and maybe a container or two.
I have already started some of my seeds indoors, with the plan of planting out in late January (with Wall O Waters season extenders). Last year I planted out on March 1, and it was just too late to harvest much of anything before the 100+ degree days in June. Additionally, I will be using early season and early mid season varieties only. (Well, except for Aunt Ruby's German Green, which I have to try again!)
Open to suggestions.
