Hello.

Forgive me if this is not the proper place to post this question. My navigation skills are poor.

I'm new and after reading some older posts I'm second guessing my tomato/pepper plan.

I'd thought 4 sq feet for indeterminate, 2 for determinate and peppers in 5 gallon buckets. Should I put my bush tomatoes in the buckets and peppers in the 2 sq? I have more space than this, but I've planned/planted the other areas for other things. All I have left are 2-4 square areas, 4-2 square areas and 4-5 gallon buckets.

Suggestions? :scratch:

I plant peppers and indeterminate tomatoes one plant per square. Sometimes I plant jalapenos two per square.

This is my first year trying determinate type and I have those in a bucket so they don't take up my precious squares.

I am planting my determinate toms in buckets this year so I can move them into the greenhouse in the fall but my indeterminates will go into my Tomato trellis 1 per square so I can string them up over the top when they reach 10'. My peppers are going in to buckets this year as well, I hope to get more out of them on a second year harvest. If I can keep them from freezing again this year.

Thanks!

It's still very hard for me to wrap my head around a tomato plant flourishing in that small space.

Ok, well I may stick the Romas in the buckets and distribute the rest in the other space, one per square. That actually is better for me...just seemed too good to be true.

On the indeterminates, I'm reading up on pruning and how best to support them. I really like the idea of cages over staking. Do you have to prune more frequently with one tomato per square?
