When you’re ready to plant tomatoes, the first thing to consider is your “microclimate.” Tomatoes need plenty of sun to produce a bumper crop. Be sure to choose heirloom varieties best suited for your area of the country. There are hundreds of varieties to choose from – early varieties, mid-season varieties and late-season varieties.
