At the full-sun site, sucker growth was slow and the suckers produced only a few flower clusters, while at the partially shaded site, suckers grew vigorously, flower clusters formed, fruits set, and a second tomato crop was harvested. Not one fruit was harvested from the tomato plants that were in full sun all day. When I picked up my two granddaughters from a camp located in upstate South Carolina, the camp director’s garden was located in an area around his tree-surrounded house, trees that were very large and widely spaced, letting in sufficient sunlight to support a strip flower/vegetable garden at the front of the house.

Although the tomato plant has some degree of tolerance to a range of growing conditions, transferring instructions suited to a particular set of growing conditions to another can result in poor performance and a disappointing crop. In addition, there is a wealth of useful as well as erroneous information on the Internet related to tomatoes—the challenge is sorting out the good from the bad.
