How to Tie Tomatoes. There are two reasons to tie tomatoes, and there's a different tie for each one. Train the leader to grow upright with a loose, figure-eight tie. To support burgeoning fruit, loop a long tie above a fruit cluster, and tie it to the stake 6 to 10 inches higher. Loop the tie twice around the stake and tie it tightly so the tomatoes dont pull it down with their weight.

Epsom salts in the soil for tomatoes and peppers. Add a Tablespoon or so in the soil when first planting and then sprinkle more into the soil when mature.

So smart. Definitely going to do this!
