    People: go to his website, http://www.therustedgarden.com, his genetic selection is IMPECCABLE and his prices are extremely fair and value minded. Thanks Gary for providing all of the great information, guidance, and being willing to share the wonderful genetics you are generous enough to allow us to purchase for what amounts to (and please allow me to make an assumption) below cost. you are a great man, and an inspiration to countless people.

    you keep saying "plant it to 1/3 of the tomato". what the heck does that mean ? if you mean 1/3 of the tomato plant, do you mean 1/3 of the total plant height ? or 1/3 of the stalk after removing the lower leaves ?

    I recently heard that when tomatoes and eggplants begin to show their fruit, its time to switch to a 5-10-10 fertilizer. Do agree with this?

    Hi Gary, I have been trying to post a pic of my tomatoes that went black on leaves after the aspirin soda watering…. I have now successfully uploaded them to your rusted garden Facebook page.. under my Facebook profile, Cheryl Searson. Hope you are able to see them and comment. I am having no luck putting a link in here and not sure what else to do. I am new on these things, sorry for inconvenience. Hope to hear from you soon. Many thanks

    This video is gratifying to watch in a way that's hard to describe, you can really tell it's a labor of love to raise these plants from start to finish! I love this format, as I'm just starting to plant some tomatoes (with seeds from your seed shop!) this video gives me confidence I can see it through to the end, and is such a helpful preview of what's to come. Thanks so much for making these!

    can you list the dates that each video was made on? I'm skipping around from one section to the next to see the difference in size, but listing the dates would help judge how fast it's growing

    (December 16, 2017 - 7:17 am)

    Great Videos Gary! Do you trim and stake indeterminate and determinate varieties of tomatoes or just your indeterminate? You might have covered this, sorry if it's a repeat question.

    I don't know anything about farming but one day I planted a tomato from seeds in a pot, that thing made a hole on the pot and it's root grew and reached all the way to the ground, this plant grow a trunk like a 2 inch wide, it looked almost like a tree trunk, I had hundreds of tomatoes from that plant it was a lucky year all fresh and organic 1/2 pound tomatoes, it grew tomatoes from April to January next year, that was amazing!! next following years I thought it was going to be the same but nope, thin skinny plants at the most I will get like 5 or 10 tomatoes per plant, and the next year it was the same, I guess there was something on the pot the first time I did it some kind of special chemicals, I don't know,

    Hear that awful roaring sound? It is the wind blowing across your microphone. There is a simple inexpensive solution: a windscreen, sometimes called a "dead cat" or wind muff.

    Those look really, really good! You know I'm listening to you and think I should be constantly adding calcium to the plants that we are having a heat wave here in Texas. My heirlooms put on 13-tomato's before I had to cut them all the way back. Though they are fast rejuvenating themselves and I am hoping by Fall or early Winter I can harvest some more than the thirteen. Thanks for posting your videos they help, but I don't know if I want to keep placing down paper and more sand as you prune them, that gets to being a lot of work. You know when we garden as kids, we planted in a huge space my parents would rent, left them alone for about a couple of weeks, went back and weed, water and left them again. We didn't do any of the special things that you are doing and still we got lots of fruit. I am wondering if it was because the temperatures in the North during spring are not too hot usually? Right now back home they are having anywhere from 75-89 degree temperature, beats what we have been getting in Texas with humidity factor 100-110 temp. and without rain!

    the leaves will usually curle when is too hot to avoid loosing too much water via transpiration

    I just planted 7 baby tomato plants yesterday. First go at growing anything. I'm glad people like you took the time to share their knowledge with us! I'm sure It'll be a disaster, but I'm hoping for the best.
