Q.tomatoes in large pots

Zone 10 | cantgrowroses added on April 16, 2012 | Answered

My tomatoes in large pots started out this spring with beautiful green leaves and loads of tomatoes. In March the leaves started to turn brown. The vines are still green and tomatoes are still ripening. I use a water meter and I did fertilize them. Is my pot too small? It takes 4 gallons of water before coming out the bottom.

As long as the overall plants look ok and appear healthy, I would not worry too much about the browning leaves. It may just be in need of some additional watering.
