I am growing four tomatoes in large 20" pots (patio; super bush; early girl improved; and super fantastic), and two tomatoes in the ground (big boy; some russian ornamental).
I have been watering all of the tomatoes like crazy, heavily every morning and on weekends again after lunch. The tomatoes look very vigorous and healthy, no yellow leaves, all have flowers and the early girl (finally) has a few tiny green tomatoes. They were all planted in late May.
But I am worried that I may be begging for problems with this watering regimen. Should I scale it back? Is it possible to over-water a plant that is in a pot with good quality potting mix? I noticed someone recommended waiting until the tomatoes begin to wilt. Now during our heat waves, that can be as little as 6 hours...
Oh, and an unrelated question: do I need to help pollinate any of the tomatoes? I've heard that hybrid varieties are self-pollinating. But would it help any for me to put on a bumblee outfit and go to town with a q-tip?
