Q.Growing Tomatoes

Zone Camarillo, Ca | Paul.sailer added on October 13, 2019 | Answered

Love growing tomatoes but have a tech question. Usually, when I buy tomatoes from Home Depot and plant them with normal round stations for them to grow in. Well, I have a mulch pill and near it I saw some tomatoes growing. Well, I let it grow with nothing around it at all. Well they grew huge in size/number of tomatoes. It was a simple set on small tomatoes. Nothing special with them. The only draw was picking them and when we had high winds. The attach was one tomatoes. Your thoughts?

Yes, this can happen where tomatoes are grown. They can come up from previous year's seeds. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/propagation/propgen/volunteer-plants-in-gardens.htm

You may notice that they grow as well, or better than some that one would plant. Usually, it is common to give the plant a little "too much love" which can stunt them.

A good test on a gardener's methodology will be to care for one yourself, then let the other one thrive on its own. This will be a good indication of whether what is being done is helping or hurting the tomato.
