Q.My Tomatoes And Cucumbers Arent Doing Well

Zone 01702 | Anonymous added on August 8, 2021 | Answered

Hi, my garden was doing very well before the tropical storm came through. Now my garden looks very sad, the tomatoes look yellow and brown, and the cucumber leaves aren’t as green as they used to be. What is going on and how can I fix it? Thanks, Elizabeth P.s. I think one of the plants has blossom end rot, but I am not sure if that is what is going on with all the others.

I don't see any signs of blossom end rot, since I can't see any indication on fruits, so it would be difficult to say without a soil test. I am more inclined to believe that the soils have remained a little too wet for too long. This can cause suffocation and infection, or make a calcium deficiency worse.

I would use a fungicide to take care of any infection that may be left over. Here is an article that will help:
