Tomatoes in Autumn

 Note  •  Published on: 26 Sep 2018

Although our summer tomatoes are gone, this bush seems to have one last harvest! The tomatoes are green thus far, but I hope they ripen. I last counted 25 of them.

  • Lauren S. Lauren S. How are your tomatoes growing now? Hope they are healthy and pests free. Tomato plants can develop many pest and disease problems. So it is important to be careful. When we faced aphids infestation on our tomato plants professionals suggested us to go for natural predators or good bugs like the ladybugs, lacewings and whitefly parasites as they help kill off whiteflies and aphids. This was very helpful. Happy and healthy plantation!

  • Roxana Roxana Our tomatoes seem to be growing very well. We haven't had any aphids, however we did have a few rats, but they left with some organic products we bought. It's great to have a second round of tomatoes! I really like the home grown kind instead of the grocery store's tomatoes.Thank you for your comment, Lauren.

  • Jo H. Jo H. We grow Tomatoes in Australia for 4-5 months and they grow back every year in the same spot from fallen fruit but we move them around our garden when they shoot up to prevent them overcrowding and mineral depletion. Keep a few seeds by drying on paper towel and replant next year as well. We grow in shade cloth hothouses to protect from frost and extreme heat this works the best for us. Good luck.

  • Roxana Roxana Thank you Jo for the information. I didn't know about Tomato power. I will have to go to the garden shop and inquire. Thus far, I am picking ripe tomatoes in December! This was totally unexpected, but our weather in Southern California is moderate. I hope they continue to thrive. Also, I has a little grape vine that is revived, with grape clusters, thus maybe it will produce fruit again. Thank you again for your two post of great information.
