Nothing like own grown tomatoes!
You see that young fella that stands out from the rest? It doesn't know it, but it's a gonner! In this heat, it will be more than ready by lunch time tomorrow:D

I'm not an expert in growing tomatoes but I've grown all my veggies in pots for several years, and I can tell you what works for me
I use pots that are 22" in diameter or larger. I use a mixture of peat mos, perlite and some organic matter
I follow the single stalk method, and I do defoliate specially the bottom ( from the base to the first branch of fruits) to prevent mold
I water at the base only, I soak it really good and feel the weight of the pot before watering again

Some pics of other potted veggies....
