I want to plant tomatoes against a block wall which has the best sun in my yard. The wall is approx 3 feet tall and I have morning glory growing above the wall.It is my understanding morning glory are a poisonous plant if ingested. Will it be safe to plant tomatoes this close to morning glory?

This may surprise you but consuming the leaves from a tomato plant is also considered poisonous. But, the fruit is safe to eat. Having a morning glory in close proximity to your tomato plants won't affect either plant, or the tomatoes. Hope you have a bountiful harvest!
