    See my previous answer.
    Instead of trying to grow a plant, focus on growing your soil.
    Soil should be a living thing with helpful micro-organisms, earth worms,...a whole living system. This makes a good environment for healthy plants.
    Put compost on your land, and don't destroy your beneficial organisms with chemicals. Read on Permaculture for more!
    I don't know how big your garden is...but...an equal mixture of peat moss, perculite, and mushroom compost with a tablespoon of lime ...remove the soil from your tomato area and replace it with your new soil...be sure to add one cup of water every three days per plant
    Add some nutrients to your soil - miracle grow is one advertized
