There are 5 small to medium tomatoes on my plant, gets probably too much sun 10-12 hrs a day and I water every day. Amended soil with compost when I planted it. Now it looks like it is dying no growtg for weeks. Leaves all curled any other yellow flowers that were there are dried up now. My question is can I save the plant with existing 5 tomatoes by transplanting it in a large container?
Please help!

Your tomato plants are stressed. Without photos, we can only make guesses.

Are these plants already in pots? If so, it could be the roots are too warm. Are you watering enough? The soil should stay damp.

Kgreen518, I think your only chance of saving you plants is to shade them during the hottest part of the day, but you may be able to ripen the fruit in a windowsill. Tomatoes tend to shut down production in hot weather, but MAY bounce back in fall when temps get lower.
