how much water is too much water?
I started planting heirlooms last year and only had success with the cherries. This year I planted 10 different heirlooms because I'm crazy. I'm trying to avoid mistakes I think I may have made last year.
1. how often should I water? I keep reading conflicting info..some say to consistently water, others only to water every few days.
2. when do I know the tomatoes are watered enough? when can I tell that they need water?
3. how do I get a nice slow watering without touching the leaves (and no I can't afford an underground hose system)?
4. I am doing both containers and in the ground tomatoes...are there different levels of moisture I should be giving them each time I water?
and this is slightly unrelated but - which are best? tomato cages or ladders?
thanks to all the expert opinions.
