I bough a Miracle grow for vegetables at the HDepot when I planted my tomatoes. I've used it about once every 2 weeks and now i have tomatoes all over my small garden. My question is, now that I have tomatoes, red and some still green, do I keep using that fertilizer or should I stop since now I have tomatoes?

Since the growing season is winding down, you can stop feeding your tomatoes. There should be plenty of nutrients remaining in the soil from the fertilizer schedule you've been following to tide the plants over until the first frost. Just store the fertilizer in a place that remains above freezing all winter long and use the fertilizer next growing season.
