I'm new to this site, and new to my garden. My mother has always had a garden but this is the first year that I have my very own. I have quite a large tomato garden this year, and some of my tom. plants are starting to yellow around the bottom. It has been very dry here this summer, and I have been watering them every two days. Could I be over watering? I will try to send a picture later. The plants look very healthy other wise. The plants which are in the planters more yellow than the ones in the ground. Thanks

You should post this in the fruits and vegetables forum. You will get tons of answers, suggestions, opinions, etc there.

Oh..and it's not uncommon to have the bottom (more mature) leaves to yellow. I just pull them off when this happens. But posting pics will give everyone a good idea as to what is going on. Good luck.

Welcome! May just be as Christina said, but it could also be overwatering. Could be disease as well. What's your soil like? Sand/Clay? Are the plants mulched? Do you fertilize?
