I purchased a Bonnie Beef eater tomato plant this year and initially it was growing great. Now the leaves aren't lush and open but curled up and lighter in color planted in the ground. Got any ideas? I'm using either Osmocote or Miracle Grow granular slow release fertilizer. I live in the Fresno, Ca area and so far it hasn't been too hot.
