First tomatoes are 4 feet' off the ground??

by Joe Harris
(Central VA)

Planted 12 tomato plants, 6 big boy and 6 early girls. At this time they are all staked, looking good but simply wondering why my first tomatoes form 4-ft off the ground. The plants are 6-ft tall now and only have blooms/tomatoes on the top parts of the plant????


Thanks,
Joe

I had this problem a few years back.

When I had this problem a few years back, I had planted the tomatoes when the soil temperature was below 50 degrees F. They grew because they were against a protective wall, and were warm during the day, but were too cold to set blossoms. Now I make sure the soil temperature is above 60 degrees before I plant. This may or may not be your problem, but the best I can think of.
