You might be picking some beautiful tomatoes from your garden about now.  Or you might be puzzled by a plant that is seemingly healthy one day, and wilted the next. What could be wrong?  This is what happened to 2 of our plants in the Arboretum's Vegetable Garden.  You can see (at the right) it is loaded with fruit, but the foliage is dying.  If you are having problems, check out this link with descriptions and pictures of common tomato problems. The list may seem long and daunting, but prevention and treatment information is also given.  And all is good when you bite into that homegrown tomato sandwich!
