Does anyone have special tricks to grow their tomatoes? Do you use wire
cages or sticks, compost or chemical fertilizers? How long is the growing
seasons in your region?

Personnaly I use as much compost as I can make, especially since my
vegetable garden is relatively new and the soil is very heavy. It really
needs a little help. I used to use the wire cage but this year I'll try to
make a tee pee with sticks and grow vine tomatoes (indeterminate). My
plants don't go into the garden until mid june (I live in Canada, Zone
4b...more or less equivalent o US zone 3)
