Hi, I finally got a chance to experience some of my garden's fares, one which included one of my first ripe, homegrown tomatoes(possibly beefsteak). I was all set to put a bann on grocery store produce, when I discovered that the tomatoe's flavor was sort of, bland. It was no reproduction of the grocery's store product either, but by no means was it the flavor-filled oasis which most experienced gardeners tend to experience. This prompted my question- are there techniques or specific ammendments or otherwise that help improve the flavors of garden produce? I heard, for example, (a possible myth) that if you put sugar in the soil at the time of planting watermelon seeds, supposedly it makes them sweeter.
