have grown tomatoes in the same place for over a decade, very good soil, always return plants to soil after season , fertilize organically, and use miracle grow time release granules sparingly. Last year I didn't have the bumper crop I usually do , but was fair. I use Bonnie plants purchased from Wal-M..... I did not find this problem addressed in common problems on internet. Please advise .
