Believe it or not, tomato plants can be perennials in frost-free areas and can produce for three or more years. Most gardeners don't keep them growing quite that long, though, because they do tend to develop disease problems. Aside from feeding and watering (use aged manure, fish emulsion or mulch with compost to provide nutrients in an organic way), your tomato plants won't need much else in terms of care. Continue to give them TLC and when your weather cools they will develop flowers and produce fruit for a late fall/early winter harvest. Enjoy your tomatoes!
