Troubles can crop up with tomatoes

Email News Alerts

Tomatoes are the most popular vegetable grown in the United States. While they are easy to grow, sometimes they are a little temperamental. They like warm weather in the spring when they are set out.

Putting black plastic around the tomato plants can warm the soil temperature by 10 degrees. As they grow they like steady warm temperatures and even moisture.
