broken stem on tomato plant
I have a tomato plant doing nicely but a stem has broken with two tomatoes the size of a pea. How do I save them?

Sometimes, if the stem is not completely broken, the tomatoes on it will still be able to obtain food and water and survive. If it is completely snapped in two, you could either throw out the broken piece, or attempt to re-root it in moist soil, perhaps with a bit of fertilizer and rooting hormone.
