Are your tomatoes getting enough water? They need 2 inches a week. If your plants wilt even with enough water, it could be a wilting disease. See the articles below on fertilizing tomatoes and tomato diseases. The best thing to do is to get a soil test and see what nutrients the soil lacks before fertilizng.
