    Do you know that Christianity? is correct? The world around us reveals that G-d DOES exist,? and the historical evidence reveals that Jesus Christ really did come to this earth and there is overwhelming? evidence that Jesus Christ really did physically rise from the dead. Jesus is coming again and the signs of the end times that were foretold in the Bible are coming to pass.

    Sorry for the delay in response! That’s great – raised beds are also wonderful for gardening. Helps keeps those rabbits somewhat out? of the garden 🙂 Thanks for letting us know about your channel too!

    I like your video, a lot of nice tips, But man, you put Miracle grow potting soil in the container. Monsanto from Marysville, Ohio makes that crap. As much as people may like it and plants grow superb in it , I would think a nice mix of regular dirt and compost / or just straight compost would be better than the Miracle? grow stuff.

    I’m not really keen on GM foods/organisms. In my own garden I try to use heirloom seeds and plants that have been passed down through the generations from my local? farmers and family. For example the garlic bulbs given to me from my uncle come from plants that can trace their lineage to over 80+ years. Realistically in the supermarket though, we can’t be sure what’s GMO vs. not. Probably why I like growing food in my own garden 🙂

    Better boy and Jet star are my 2 fav tomato varieties 🙂 I plant 2 plants per container & they grow about 4-5 ft tall (including the container). I use those wire cages to support them and keep them straight as they grow. I average 20-30 tomatoes per plant (40-60 per pot). I pick the? tomatoes off as soon as they turn red and are still firm and not overripe – regardless if it’s just 1 or 15 at a time. I position the container in my yard that gets maximum view of the sun – 6-7 hours.

    How many hours of direct sunlight do they need to grow? have you grown better boy tomatoes? If you have, how tall did they grow? And are you supposed to harvest all the tomatoes on a plant at once or only a few at a time?? There was an article saying if you harvest a few tomatoes at a time they will produce more. on average, how many tomatoes per plant did you get? would 10 tomatoes per plant be realistic?

    I can only speak for ones native to my area (PA). They produce fruit 60 days after transplant regardless of light cycle. I plant end of May (after frost) & they’ll produce fruit? beg of Aug. They like direct sunlight, but we had a cloudy rainy summer one time, and I still got nice fruit. The blooms don’t like temp extremes (cold nites/scorching hot days), but they do love companion plants next to them like marigolds, onions and basil. But once frost hits in Oct, the plant dies.

    do tamatoes bloom on their own? or does it require a change in the light cycle? for example, some plants have vegatative growth in the spring and summer during the long days? of sun, then they bloom in the fall when the days are shorter. (longer dark cycle triggers some plants to bloom)
