Tomatoes - mine are tiny, help
I've tried to have a garden for a while now, and I read up, but my tomaoes (and some of my other veggies) just don't want to grow right.
I really usually stick with Parks Whopper (because I really don't know what the best kind is), Roma and Grape tomatoes.
It doesn't seem to matter where I plant them, they never seem to grow very tall and the fruit isn't very good. My garden is raised with dirt/horse manure mix and has been there about 2 years. This year (for some unknown reason maybe because they were along a fence, idk) I planted them under a tree, so they get afternoon/evening sunlight only. I put root stimulator on them when I planted them. I water them, I fed them, they are still shrimpy. The irritating thing is that about 100yds away from my garden, my dad planted a whole row of peppers and tomatoes and they are big and beautiful.
I have taken care of the grasshoppers and other pest insects, so that cant be the issue. The leaves are all green, no spots, so no blight...i'm clueless!
So, if anyone has the time for some tomato/vegetable growing 101, I'd greatly appreciate it!!
