tomato tops not ripening. Picture...
Hi. Pretty much a novice and I just threw some tomato plants in the ground at our new house this year. I was pregnant and not too motivated to do it the right way. So now I have leaf curl on a number of my plants. :( Probably because the soil doesn't drain well? It's covered with plastic then mulch... or because it's too hot here? 90-100s. Both? I'm thinking to pull up the plastic the old home owners left and I already water them myself. They are only in sun in the afternoon and evening. There's not much else I can do about the heat.
The sad thing though is that I have lots of tomatoes but they are ripening on the bottom half only. I waited and waited but some I picked yesterday were still yellow/green on a bit of the top and over ripe on the bottom. What causes this? It's mostly Romas but I have some mixed variety Heirloom and cherry tomatoes too. The cherrys and Heirlooms maybe are not ripening right either.
