The Q&A Archives: Yellow Tomato Plants

Question: My tomato plants are starting to get a yellow tint to them. We have gotten a lot of rain in the last few weeks and I have fed them with Miracle Gro. Is it to much water or could it be something else? My squash is doing the same thing.

Answer: It is certainly possible that your soil has become temporarily over-saturated because of the high rainfall. There's probably nothing more you can do except hope the rain lets up and the soil has a chance to dry out. Both squash and tomatoes grow best in full sunshine and appreciate occasional feedings. Miracle Gro is just fine to use. Hope your veggies perk up soon!
