Re: [tomato] Watering Container Grown Tomatoes (

Whenever I water anything in a container - I water it at least twice.  This 
is for anything I have at home, or when I was working at a nursery.  Usually 
you don't get a thorough soaking with the first pass.  After about 15 
minutes, go back and give them a second drink.

When I used to do tomatoes on an apartment balcony in large boxes, I used 
grass clipping as a mulch.  Kept the moisture more even.
