Roots will form on buried portions of the stems of tomato plants, so vigorous, compact transplants can be planted about 2 inches (5 cm) deeper than they are in the pot. For taller, lanky plants with few leaves, pinch off the lower leaves and set the plants into the soil horizontally with just a few sets of top leaves showing above the ground. 
Harvesting instructions: Pick your tomatoes when the fruits turn a dark red to maroon, are beginning to soften and they release easily from the stems. Keep freshly picked tomatoes on the counter and use within a few days. You can also can your tomatoes whole, diced, stewed or as a sauce in a hot water bath. Follow the directions exactly when canning tomatoes.
