If you’re going to buy tomatoes in winter, try buying them at the same time as peppers.
“In spring, peppers have a more pronounced flavor and are more tender,” says Tom Waddell, a commercial food writer and author of the new book Tomato Planting 101: From Spring To Autumn.
“But in the fall and winter, they’re a little softer and tend to be a little more bitter.”
You can use both peppers and tomatoes in the same pot, and you can even grow a garden of tomato plants with your own plants.
“I just have to plant my tomato plants in a spot where I know that there will be a lot of tomato growing there,” says Waddells.
That way, the peppers and potatoes can coexist in a warm, sunny environment, and the tomato plants will be able to tolerate more of the season’s tomatoes.
“You don’t have to be an expert gardener to make a good tomato garden,” says Dr. Elizabeth B. Anderson, a certified organic vegetable breeder and an expert on gardening.
She suggests growing your own tomato plants and planting a variety of different varieties of tomatoes to make sure your garden has variety.
She also recommends buying a tomato plant nursery in your area.

“Tomatoes are a pretty big part of a vegetable garden, and if you’re buying in bulk, you can make the tomatoes last a long time,” says Anderson.
Waddill says there are also some important considerations when buying tomato plants: “If you’re growing tomatoes in a greenhouse, they need to be in a sunny location.
If you are growing in a large, shady spot, they won’t grow as well.
And if you are planting in a cooler climate, you will be getting too much moisture.”
In addition, “You want to avoid having them in direct sunlight,” says Boudreau.
“It will kill them.”
Vegetables are good candidates for indoor planting because they provide lots of food for plants in the soil, which is more conducive to good root growth.
“If they’re planted indoors, you’ll get a lot more of that food, which can be great for plants,” says Jones.
Vegetables also tend to have a higher nitrogen load, which means they’ll be more nutritious.
They also require less water than beans and other foods, and they can be planted in pots with water that’s not as acidic as it would be for beans.

In addition to the basics, you should also be aware of these other important tips: “Don’t forget to feed your plants a good diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, and also plenty of organic compost,” says Lizzie Siegel, an organic gardening expert who writes a newsletter called The Organic Gardener.
“Some people don’t like eating compost because it’s a bit acidic,” she says.
“They also like eating it in soups, stews, and pasta sauces.
But, if you don’t, you’re putting a lot into your compost.”
