You need to have honey bees to polenate the flowers or use a feather or your fingers and lightly pinch the blosums to spread the pollen ! Better luck next year !!

there are entire fields lost to blight which is a fungi that attacks tomato plants
and i also know that its really bad in the US this year
there are 2 types of blight that know of early and late blight
you cant tell if u have early blight (or its really hard to tell)
and when u have late blight u can see the fungi on the plants foliage and stem
look it up
it could be the problem
ps if u have blight u should just rip your plants out it spreads up to 40 miles in the wind
also makes it so your plant has little to no fruits

too much N will give lush dark green growth
that bears very little yield.
stop giving N, flush soil with pure water
to remove accumulated mineral salts.


i work at one of the biggest tree nurseries in Maine

I think I had a combination of late blight and of too much fertilizer. I gave them some tomato food and a week later they were dying off and just flat out died out. They were an indeterminate variety and should still be fruting now till frost strikes, but they have been dead for weeks. I'd say I got about 45 tomatoes from 3 plants. Not great, but not too bad either. I saved some seeds, still have to germ test them, and I may try a diff variety along with this next year.

Sauce I made from these was excellent. Very fresh nice tasting sauce with lots of fresh basil added towards the end of cooking to keep the basil flavor strong. Some were diced and cut up, some were strained with a tomato strainer. So a mixed batch, but oh so good. :)

Wazzle on! :headbang:
