Succession planting

After my main planting of tomatoes at the end of the month, I’ll leave room and keep planting all summer. I’ve found that the plants enjoy the warmer soil and air temperatures into June. The key to the last planting of tomatoes in early July is to choose quick maturing varieties like ‘Sungold’ or ‘Red Racer.’
