I've been gardening for many years but I always have tomato problems. I follow all the guidelines; resistant plants, clean-up in fall, don't splash leaves when watering. Already bottom leaves are turning yellow. I try to stay organic but I can't stand this anymore. Also, when I plant cukes or squash, I get a few fruits and those plants wither and die. I know they say rotate but I have a garden not a farm and limited space. I'm looking first to try organic methods but will apply chemicals if needed. Like I said I'm sick of this. Do you have suggestions? Thanks for your help.

Our tomato leaves are turning a bit yellow now, too, but I think it is the intense heat and the fact that mine haven't have a lick of real rain in three weeks. The tomatoes are bearing just fine, however. I find that one of the biggest problems gardeners experience is the lack of lime.
