Re: QUESTION: Overwatering Tomatoes?

Usually the yellowing of leaves usually means that there is not enough iron in the soil. Also adding a good 10-20-10 fertilizer might help. Don't add too much and make sure it is totally dissolved in the soil or it will burn the plants.
Next year try to work it into the soil before you plant. Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), and Sulfur (S) are essential to the good growth of plants. One can get them from ashes from your fireplace, broken pieces of wallboard, coffee grounds, sawdust, Manure, and iron filings also worked into the ground.

I found it takes at least three years to get a good rich soil loam.
