Need advice for fall tomatoes in Central Texas!

15 years ago

Hey y'all! I have 8 beautiful tomato plants, some of which are 5-6 feet tall already (I planted early :) ) but I am already thinking about the fall season!

I would like to plant tomatoes for a fall crop, and would love any tips that fellow Texas tomato growers can offer. I.e, when to put plants in ground, sow directly or start inside, how to protect from sun until it starts getting cooler, and any other wisdom you may have to bestow. Also, would it be better to post this on the Texas forum?

This is my first real season growing tomatoes and it has been great - I've picked at least 50-60 cherries (sweet million and sungold), 3 celebrity, and one brandywine so far - and I want to continue the fun into the fall!

Thanks, Emma in Austin
