Large Scale Tomato Planting

This is an interesting video because it demonstrates large scale tomato planting using black plastic sheeting as sheet mulching. This is clearly not for your amateur beginning gardener, but it does show some alternative ways to prevent weed growth and also to warm up the soil to speed plant growth in the early stages. It’s advisable not to use black plastic in your garden, and stick to more conventional mulching methods. The other thing that’s really amazing is how deep into the ground you can actually stick tomato plants, simply because they will form roots from all those little hairs on their stem. This actually gives them a head start on a more developed root system earlier in the season than you’d expect. See the video here.
