This year we decide to grow tomatoes in a pot, we put 6 plants in this pot, a little to much. They grow well but they are still green and getting a little white before gaining colors. In that pot they need about 6 liter/day of water. Picture taken handheld with 17-55 at 17mm

I agree with Frank! It's too hot down here to grow 'maters in pots. They'd always be dried out and wilty by the time I came home from work! I'll garden vicariously through you and Leigh! :)

Leigh the great part of the tomatoes that we use at home come from a farmer market, I buy San Marzano tomatoes to do spaghett sauce that we deep freeze.

I aso do a base, olive oil/garlic/tomatoes that is also deep freeze (the taste is more neutral than canning, no acid added and just a little bit of salt).

The pot is a test that we made this year, the best would had been to put only 3 plants/pot. Those pots have a reservoir for water at the bottom. I guess the tomatoes won't be mature before the middle of august.
