Maybe the best way to irrigate tomatoes would be overhead up until blossom then switch to flood. Perhaps even the first bit of time after blossom could still be done overhead. After that flood irrigation with warm or calcium fortified water? But tomatoes are well suited to drip irrigation also. If the water is cold thats ok as long as its not the entire root zone. Cold water on the entire root zone equals calcium issues. They like the low soil moisture and cool nights I think so in this regard the pacific northwest is perfect... yet most home gardeners struggle here probably because of lack of sun or 80 degree days or having the wrong soil fertility--which is normal here after it rains all winter.
