Here's the Dirt: Tomatoes

Tips to grow beautiful tomatoes

Champaign, Ill - Trent Hawker for the U of I Extension shares tips to grow tomatoes.
 
Right now is the perfect time to plant our warm season garden crops. Things like tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, zucchini, and cucumbers. 
 
My favorite vegetable to grow in the garden is the tomato. 93% of gardening households in the US grow tomatoes, and with over 10,000 varieties to choose from you are sure to find one that suits you. Tomatoes are in the nightshade family of plants and are related to potatoes, petunias, and tobacco.
