I have beefsteak tomato seedlings in a small pot. There about 10 4-inch seedlings. When I transplant them, does each seedling need to be separated? This is my first time planting a garden. Also, what plant can be in the same raised flower bed? Or should the tomatoes be in their own, like 5-gallon bucket?
Looks like you have successfully germinated your tomato seedlings.
I like to separate and individually pot them up when they have their first true set of leaves.
Make sure they are getting plenty of sunlight and water.

I am growing beefsteak tomatoes or a large type in 2 large 24 inch deep terracotta pots on my screen porch. The plants have blossoms and are 6 ft high, have lots of tomatoes on them. They get at least 6 hrs of sun on the covered porch but so far I got only 2 tomatoes to turn red. They were at the bottom, one on each bush and each is next to 2-3 on the vine almost twice the size but still green with a lot of tomatoes but no hint of turning red. I live in Florida and it is over 90 now but the plants are on a screen porch. The 2 tomatoes that turned red were very tasty but not real big. The ones on the vine appear healthy and are much larger than the 2 red ones I picked. What have I not done? Thanks
When temperatures rise above 90 F and do not drop into the 70's at night, many varieties of tomatoes will slow down and even stop the ripening process. Extra watering can help to bring down the air temp around the tomatoes, but really, what you need are some cooler nights.
Planted Legacy or Beefsteak tomatoes in April using a Lifetime(TM) plastic raised garden bed, 4'L x 4'W x 18" D. Used organic garden soil from Lowe's. Tomatoes have thrived until heavy rains through month of May. Now, several tomatoes have been partially eaten by snails while several more have multiple splits (5-6) in the skin starting from the stem and extending on the upper quarter of the fruit's crown.
Fluctuations in temperature can be the cause, as well as heavy rains or dry spells.
Mulching can be a help.
How ofter do you water beefsteak tomatoes? I live in the desert in CA.
It really depends on many factors, such as soil type, rainfall and temperature. In your case, I would suspect that daily watering would be needed. I recommend planting an indicator plant near your tomatoes, such as impatiens. If the indicator plant looks wilted, you know that you need to water.
I have about 8 different tomato plants in my garden, but only my Beefy Boy and Beefsteak plants are sagging. They look like they are dying, only two plants. What am I doing wrong? Please help.
Without a clearer description of the symptoms it's hard to determine the issue.
Have you inspected for insects, plant damage, holes in leaves?
Is the plant dying from the top down or bottom leaves?
Here is a few articles that discuss tomato plant disease.
See if you can match up the symptoms.
