My Ugly Tomato Plant

My sister-in-law asked me this week-end if there was anything to do to make her tomato plant healthier. She said it was looking bad, but it was still producing good tomatoes. My comment…that’s what tomato plants look like this time of year. Keep applying Hasta Gro Fertilizer, water deeply, and enjoy your tomatoes! Then…once you’ve picked your last tomato, pull the plant up, let the soil rest for a few weeks, then mix in new Nature’s Blend and you’ll be ready for our new fall veggies!

  1. I live in corpus christi, tx. Is it too late to start vegetable container gardening?
    First time grower.
    It would be planted in pots on back porch.
    Thank you.

  2. Its late to plant your “flagship” vegetables like tomatos, corn, spinach, etc. but there are a few summertime things. Maybe you could do a little squash, peppers, or blackeye peas, certainly you can do dwarf okra and basil and rosemary. Little known is purslane, good tasting as stirfry or in salads, excellent nutrition, and absolutely heat proof. But for mainstream vegetables, you will start new crops in September/October. Be sure your pots are large enough, this is a common mistake.
