So far, my containerized tomatoes are winning the growth-rate race. The ones in containers are being spoiled with Black Gold Organic Potting Soil, while the in-ground plants are thinking, “Uh, Angela? When’s the last time you added compost to these beds? Our roots can barely breathe down here! And would it kill you to feed us more regularly? Sheesh!”
Actually, I think the in-ground soil temperature hasn’t caught up with the pots yet. Later in the season, it’ll be trickier keeping the containers watered often enough.
Will the in-ground tomatoes catch up? Which plants will be the healthiest and put out the most tomatoes? The tastiest tomatoes?
