Tomato plants

My tomato plants have recently slowed on producing fruit. Is there a way to increase production? Is this plant ready for the compost pile? The temperature has been in the 90's

Hi, Tomatoes slow down naturally when the temperatures are that hot. In fact, the flowers themselves often drop at this time. All you can do is hold on till the temperatures drop back into the 80s.
