Compost.

LOTS of mulch.

Stake early and maintain.

Do not water foliage or in evening hours.

Regularly remove the suckers at leaf joints.

Try to set up irrigation with a soaker hose that will provide necessary water as needed.

Watch for insect and blight symptoms and take appropriate measures.

KEEP FOLIAGE AND FRUIT OFF THE SOIL!

I write this from the experience of a late blight infestation in 2010. This year I had a bountiful crop. Also a 2 1/4 pound tomato.
