Hi! So this is my first time gardening, and because we live in military housing, I have a container garden. Among my four plants, I have a tomato plant. I can't remember the specific type.

The plant is producing fruit that has turned a beautiful shade of red, and is continuing to produce more little green bulbs. But, in the middle of the plant, the leaves started to turn brown, and now its moving up to the top of the plant, though a lot of is still very healthy looking. The bottom of the plant is pretty and green with yellow flowers, but sometimes the flowers do die.

I am all new to this, but I suspect something to do with water and sun. I really want to succeed with my little garden, and my other plants are doing very well. I even managed to fix a lavender plant that was a victim to rain flooding the pot and leaving about 3 inches of water in the container. Thank you for any help (:

Sounds normal to me.
Give blossoms a little flick of finger in early morning. There blossoms are self pollinating.
Old leaves die off.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Oh good!! I didn't think it was anything serious, since its producing fruit. Good to know its the natural cycle of things.

Thank you for taking the time to reply (:
