If you are new to tomato gardening, and don't know where to start. Start small.

Container gardens, are the perfect starter gardens, as you have more control, and the garden will not get away from you, the way a large one can. I am sure it has happened to all of us at one time or another, it certainly happened to me. Vegetable gardens, especially tomato gardens are a lot of work, but rewarding.

You get excited to grow tomatoes, and dig up a big patch, only to realize, that this needs weeding, mulching and tending to, through the hot days, as well as lots of water. Plus a bumper crop of tomatoes you now need to deal with. If you are not sure if this is for you, then start much smaller.

Instead of this situation, try growing tomatoes in containers. Get four good sized containers, that you can handle, and us a quality potting mix, with good drainage, in each one. The reason I say four containers, is that you should also try four varieties of tomato plants to grow, One plant in each container.

This way, you can see which tomato is best for you, some plants are hardier than others, but one thing is for sure, the weeding and care of containers is no where near as time consuming. You may only have four plants, but you will get a good supply of tomatoes for your family, and some different varieties to try. Like taste testing!

After you harvest your tomatoes, you can decide if a tomato garden, or vegetable garden is for you. Then decide your plan of action for next year.

Container gardens for food, such as tomato plants, have become more popular, especially if you live in a small place, or only have a balcony. You can still enjoy the taste of a fresh picked tomato without all the work. Just remember to keep track of the varieties you grow, so that you can choose the best one for next year, or try four more.

Add a couple of small flowers, and you not only have food, but beauty as well to enjoy.
