favorites is survival gardening. there many other types to explore.
When planting tomatoes be sure and set the plants deeper in the soil than in the original container. Be sure and use mulch or black plastic ground cover to maintain even soil temperature and moisture. A light side dressing of fertilizer may be applied when blossoms first appear. Also while plants are small you should put a tomato cage or some other type of support, so when the plant is mature it will not fall over from the weight of the tomatoes. Soil should be well limed before planting, this and even moisture levels will help prevent Blossom-End Rot. Select tomato varieties that are resistant to disease. Harvest tomatoes when red and juicy. A the end of the season, pick green tomatoes before the first frost and wrap in a single layer of newspaper and bring indoors to ripen.
I am just your average joe who goes to work everyday and pays the bills, but I do have a hobby of gardening which was handed down to me by my grandfather who gardened during the Great Depression to survive in the mountains of pa.
I do have other hobbies like surfing the net and blogging. I like to go camping and I love the outdoors.
