Big Boy tomatoes
Hello. Last year was my first season growing a vegetable garden, and I feel like I had a good first year. This year, I'm expanding a little now that I've gotten the hang of most of the things I wanted to grow. But last season, I failed miserably at tomatoes. I planted 1 Big Boy plant, which I purchased at a local nursery, in one of those topsy turvy planters that I received as a gift, and I only managed to get 2 good tomatoes out of it. Just taking a guess, that's not much. I did everything I read to do, trimmed the plant when it needed it, gave it good sunlight, well watered. I got a LOT of buds, but they always fell off before they could get much larger than a pea. My main reason for even planting tomatoes, is for my father-in-law, who says Big Boys are the best. I plan to give the Big Boy another shot, but I would also like suggestions for another tomato similar to Big Boy. I am planning to order seeds from Baker Creek, and I'm unfamiliar with ANY of their tomato seeds they have available. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm planning to start seeds indoors again this year, and am trying out the "newspaper pot" method. Thanks.
