One of my tomato plants does not have any tomatoes or flowers. It did earlier. It is still green. Is it dead? Or will more tomatoes come? The week of extreem heat did a number on my garden. As the tomatoes that are there become ripe, there are no new flowers to replace them. My peppers on the other hand, are doing wonderful in the hot weather.
I planted a new row of onions and they look great. I am wondering what else I can put a second crop in? It will not frost here until October or November.
What variety of tomato did you have? Some are determinate' some indeterminate (not sure on the spelling). If your variety bears all season, then it should continue producing flowers and fruits. If it's one that has a "single" crop, then that might be it for the year. You can try trimming back suckers and see if it decides to panic and put on fruit.
I had one plant which got its stem broken and died. Hoping for better luck next year...or I might get a plant from the nursery that's big and loaded with fruit and plant in my really big planter. Not sure yet.
Learn new things every day - I didn't know about determinate and indeterminate tomatoes! I wonder what mine are...
