Best tomatoes ever for me
by Jim Vann
I buried a soaker hose in a small trench (about 4-5 inches deep) snaked through my tomato garden. I covered the whole area with a plastic that kept out the sunlight to avoid having weeds in the plot.
I punched holes in the plastic and planted my plants about every 2 feet around the length of the hose. I could water them from underground and also add liquid fertilizer to the hose to also feed them from underground.
I had the best crop of tomatoes I've ever had. Hope this might also work for you .
