I'm getting sick to my stomach just thinking about this. I think I ruined my tomato plants Our spring here in Virginia (Zone 7) was so wet, they didn't grow very well. Their leaves curled from too much water, and they grew very slowly. So I pinched the early flowers to encourage the plant to have better upward growth. Well apparently I pinched the flowers off for too long (I stopped at the beginning of June). All our friends have little green tomatoes, and our flowers just opened. I was reading online that it's ~2 months from flowering to ripe fruit, which would be the end of August!!! That's normally the height of tomato season, not the very beginning! Oh woe is me the overzealous gardener!
Do you think I should fertilize them? We usually don't fertlize, just compost and worm casting. I already did both of those a few weeks ago. Do you think some tomato fertilizer would help? I'm wary of doing any more at this point as I have screwed this up royally already.
