Tips to reduce water use

We recommend mulching the beds.
Experience has shown that covering the ground with hay or straw can reduce evaporation by 80%. Keeping the beds evenly moist will create an optimal moist microclimate under the mulch. This not only helps the plants to grow, but also reduces the water consumption enormously. On our farm we only water every 2-3 days and irrigate a 200 m2 cultivation area in the Algarve in Portugal with 500l of water. Our beds are always moist, which promotes plant growth and crop quality.

It is also advisable to keep the beds moist at all times.
Even if the bed is not used for a certain period of time. Drying out the soil causes a huge reduction in the micro- and macro-organisms in the soil, resulting in an infertile soil.
Tests have shown that the addition of water to the entire bed is lower over a longer period of time than if it is only poured selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured areas, as opposed to the large dry volume, they dry out faster than if the entire volume of the bed were filled with moisture.
Similar to heating in an apartment.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to reach this level again and again.

Planting information
Tomatoes are sown directly outdoors from February after the last frosts or grown in a warm place. The best time to germinate tomatoes is in the first week of summer in spring when the cold period has subsided. After germinating the seeds in warm temperatures, the seedlings need cool temperatures! Once germinated, allow the seeds to grow in moderate temperatures until planted out as a seedling.
Beefsteak tomatoes are grown with 1 or 2 shoots. A framework for tying the tomatoes is recommended. Sufficient and even watering has a positive effect on fruit quality. At temperatures below 5°C the plant reduces its growth. A regular harvest promotes yield.
