Planting tomatoes in the same spot. You will be shocked...
I live near oceanside Ca. And I drive on the 5 freeway everyday, which is right on the coast. I can see the ocean while driving. On the ocean-side of the highway is acer's and acer's of tomatoes. I have watched for years and years tomatoe's being planted all year round in the same place.
Once the tomatoes are done producing they are harvested and the plants are ground down into the ground and they re- plant again. Starting the process all over again.
I was under the impression that you should not re plant in the same spot. How can they keep planting year after year after year in the same spot?
I have seen them truck in lots of white piles of (gypsum?) I am not sure what it is, but it stinks.. So can anyone tell me why we are told never to plant in the same spot? But they are breaking all the rules as this place does it year round.
Also, How can you plant tomatoes year round? I only live 10 minutes away from these tomatoes and I cant plant year round. So, anyone want to tackle this big question? Thanks in advance..
