When 1 - 3 true leaves grow, dive the seedlings into separate plastic cups and feed them with mineral fertilizer. If you are transplanting seedlings into one large container, then make the distance between the seedlings 8 cm.
Planting seedlings in the ground
To plant seedlings, choose an area that is well lit by the sun and protected from cold winds.
In autumn, scatter 2 - 3 kg of manure per 1 m² and dig up the soil to the depth of a shovel. In the spring on 1 m² of land, pour 40 g of potassium sulfate, 50 g of superphosphate, 30 g of ammonium nitrate and dig up the soil.
Anyone who has grown tomatoes knows that seedlings are planted in the ground in May 55 - 60 days after sowing the seeds. This is done as soon as the risk that the seedlings will fall under return frost disappears. Plant in the evening or afternoon when there is no sun. Dig the holes, making an indent between them 40 cm, and between the rows - 50 cm, or keep the distance between the holes 30 cm, and between the rows - 60 cm.Place the seedlings with a lump of earth in the hole and cover with soil to the first leaf. Compact the soil, then water the soil twice.
Water the bushes abundantly in the evening with warm water, but do not let the drops of water fall on the leaves. Very few stepsons grow up. Be sure to cut off your stepchildren: if you place them in the ground, they will take root very quickly, new bushes will grow out of them. You do not need to tie up the bushes.
Pull up weeds, loosen the soil after each watering so that a crust does not form. Cover the ground with last year's straw or sawdust that has been in place for about a year. Do not use fresh sawdust - they make the soil acidic.
A week after planting seedlings, feed the bushes with mineral fertilizers. Then feed when ripe tomatoes on the first brush.
Many people who grew bushes were convinced that the Riddle is a super early variety, although it is not resistant to late blight, but due to the fact that tomatoes ripen before the mass spread of late blight and other diseases, pests do not have time to infect them and treatment with fungicides is not required. Tomatoes can be harvested from the second week of June. From 1 hectare, you can collect 30 - 40 tons of tomatoes.

Leave the first tomato to turn red for seeds, let the fruit grow before it is fully ripe. Then pick it off, squeeze the seeds into a glass, in which 1/3 of water, leave for 2 - 3 days, then the seeds will sink to the bottom. Drain the water, rinse the seeds and dry.
