Zone 87508 | auvat1@gmail.com added on July 19, 2023 | Answered

Can anyone tell me what is going on with my tomatoes. We live in NM, zone 6. The summer has been very hot with temperature in the low to mid 90’s. I am watering the plants twice a day, for 10 mts each time via drip irrigation. The leaves look healthy. Please see the pix attached. Thanks for any help.
