staked tomatoes more or less quit producing
I have three staked tomatoes - one Mr Stripey and two beefmaster. All three are six to seven feet tall, and I pruned most suckers in early growth.
Mr. Stripey hasn't made even one flower and his lower half looks brown and dead.
The beefmasters both started strong and gave me 10-12 tomatoes between them by the first week of august. But now I only have like two small ripening tomatoes. The beefmasters also look yellow and dead-ish on the lower half while the upper halfs look green and strong.
This is my first time with tomatoes. Can I expect or encourage a second round of tomatoes? Should the bottoms of the vines be yellowing and looking dead? If Mr. Stripey hasn't produced yet, can I give up on him?
