Until Thursday I didn't know my gardener had planted tomatoes in my back garden. He gave me three of them, and apologized that the birds had gotten two others. I left them near the kitchen window to ripen, which was a mistake, because by the time they reached that beautiful red ripe color, the insides were mealy. Live and learn.

Yesterday I picked three more, and used one in a sandwich for lunch today. It wasn't mealy when I sliced it.

Imagine my surprise to see an article featured in yahoo this morning:
A master gardener shares 6 secrets for planting tomatoes

The article wasn't really from yahoo; it was a link to the L.A. Times article at http://www.latimes.com/health/la-hm-pla ... story.html

Anybody out there got any opinions on these "secrets"?

The only tricks I knew were to plant marigolds with them to help keep the bugs away, and to pinch off any new growth inside the "elbows" of branches.
