Tomoto Plants Stopped Producing
"I have 3 very healthy tomato plants that have never been given fertilizer that have stopped producing. I am assuming this has happened b/c the weather is so hot here in New Orleans. I am new to the area and have never had tomatoes do this to me before. Should I leave the plants in the ground with the hope that they will begin to make flowers again when it cools off or should I pull them up? "

"Hi
It's likely that your hot weather is to blame. If temps climb into the 90s for days in a row, the tomatoes often drop their flowers before they get fertilized. I'd leave them alone. They should continue to produce eventually."
