Do you want to learn how you can easily grow your homemade sweet, juicy tomatoes? In fact, tomatoes can grow almost in any warm and a little damp places.
It is important to know that if there is adequate sunlight, water and you have enough patience you can easily grow a tomato plant, which is six foot tall and also with large or cherry size, red, or other heirloom colours, juicy tomatoes!
Also, tomatoes usually take a long time to grow, and that is why you should have great patience. According to James Bryan – Genius is actually 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration!
Additionally, this man had a bright idea and succeeded in something that is miraculous. In other words, on May 28th, he started planting 4 tomatoes around a garbage can, which had holes at the bottom rim and a second row about 10 inches up. Moreover, Mr. Bryan buried the can and ensured that the top holes were barely above the ground and put in 2 compost full shovels.
After that, this man filled the can up with water each 2 days but he tried to avoid watering their leaves. Incredibly, just within half a month, these 4 plants grew 5 feet and 4 inches, and also they were loaded with green tomatoes. Believe it or not, there were also about hundreds of tomato blossoms.
To explain you more deeply, firstly, this man actually used a 13 gallon kitchen garbage can in order to grow his tomato plants above, but then he decided to use 5 gallon buckets as they are much cheaper as well as easier to find in quantities.
Keep in mind you may even use a larger can if you provide each plant with 5 gallons of water within a week. For example, in case you use a 5 gallon bucket and plant 2 tomato plants around it, then you should fill the 5 gallon bucket twice within a week.
Mr. Bryan stated proudly that now he grows tomatoes for the green market, and he has a higher yield per plant than most of the growers do.
Tomatoes are an amazing source of nutrients:
Tomatoes are actually a great source of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants, for instance: folic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, beta-carotene, choline, lutei, and lycopene. They are also abundant in vitamin C, K, molybdenum, and biotin. Furthermore, tomatoes contain extremely high amounts of vitamin A, B6, E, dietary fibre, copper, niacin, manganese, potassium, folate, as well as phosphorus.
For instance, in fact, one medium whole tomato contains about 22 calories, 1 gram of protein, 1 gram of dietary fibre, 5 grams of carbohydrates, 6 milligrams of sodium and also it doesn’t contain any fat. Also, it can provide you with 40 % of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, 20 % of vitamin A, 2 % of iron and 1 % of calcium.
To sum up, tomatoes can be a really versatile food. You can consume them raw, add them in salads or on sandwiches, and enjoy their taste even when cooked!
Note: In case you consider planting tomatoes, decide on a support plan before you set out your plants, and add that support directly after planting. Just enjoy growing your small red diamonds!
