Pine straw for mulching tomatoes works for me. I find it keeps the weeds down and makes watering easy.

Pine Needle Mulch NEW
by: Georgia Grower

Of the various means of mulching tomatoes, here in Central Georgia, 3-5" of pine needle straw atop landscape fabric does the best. It admirally controls fungus and disease by stopping the splattering of leaves by garden soil. Remove and discard the pine straw at the end of each growing season, and refresh with new at the beginnng of the next season. The downside of this is the high cost of pine needle mulch, but it is outweighed by the overwhelming control of soil and waterborne disease. It must be 'tucked' properly, when put down, but retains its loft and airiness all season.
