If I grow lots of tomatoes, I put a stake every five or six plants and run the string across the stakes. Then I tie the tomatoes on alternating sides of the string. I fertilize exclusively with goat, horse and chicken manure. I also use compost, but, not chemical fertilizers, except as I transplant the seedlings. If you plan on using fertilizer the corn uses a lot of nitrogen (abundant in chicken and horse manure). I mix a wheelbarrow of dirt, compost and manure. The lighter the color of the garden dirt the more manure I add. I run my straight line string and every 12 inches across the line I dig an 18 inch deep hole with my posthole digger and fill it with my enriched mixture from the wheelbarrow. I take a tomatoe plant and transplant it into this spot. Every year I plan to move my holes a little bit to get a deeper richness into my garden. I start my tomatoes the first or second week of march, and transplant them in mid to late April. Some years I could get a second crop, but I don't have enough market as most of what I grow we consume. I usually use beef steak tomatoes. That's my tomatoe story. Perhaps you have a good Beet plan. The first year I grew beets, I got nothing. This year I got good beet greens, yet no good beet root. I tried this year in a grow box with potting soil and manure and regular dirt. The greens were great, yet I didn't get any usable beets.
