So April is right around the corner and almost time to think about planting a few tomato plants and maybe a few peppers...does anyone on here read the almanac? What does the Spring and Summer look like as far as rain? If its going to be soggy Ill just skip it and buy them...I love home grown tomatos but where we plant if its to wet they dont thrive. Nothing like a thick slice of home grown mater and mayo on some good bread with salt and a little pepper Mmmm!

Yea, I planted tomatoes early two years ago when it was a wet spring.   Lost all the plants completely and I needed to replant all of them.

My suggestion is to get some big planters/containers, and buy the patio variety.  This way you can put them close to the house, and control the drainage better. :)  https://www.almanac....eather-outlook#

My wife wants to try building some raised beds for the garden.  I'm considering it if I can find the time.  Just takes a LOT of dirt to fill them.

^ we do this with cherry tomatoes.  Do this as well with some peppers such as jalapenos.

The bigger tomatoes go into the garden.

We have raised beds in the garden and love them!  Allows us to grow all types of vegetables. 

 

Once built, they last forever.

Do it even if you start out small with just a couple of beds

I have a raised garden just like a plow garden. I grow all veg. I have just enough room as if had a plow garden. As for tomatoes I mix powder milk feed these to mine tomatoes. Outside skin not so hard.

 I am going to try your powder milk feed, October.  I actually have some powdered milk packs that are a little outdated, and this seems like a good way to put the to a good use. :) Thanks for posting this!

We haven't bought any plants yet, but I am anxious to get some.  I love, love, love spring, and can't hardly wait for the temps to get just a little bit warmer.  It is very tempting to want to put them out now, but I know it is much safer to wait a little bit. :)
