  •  Mulch thick around the (6+ / 0-)

    tomato plants.  Build a "dam" or "collar" about 6" out from the stem around each plant so the water doesn't run off.  Don't water every day, but water deep when you do (a cup per plant while small up to half gallon per plant when big and producing).  Depending on where you live, you can water as seldomly as once a week (like when I lived in Madison, WI) or as often as every other day (in TX and here in AR).
