Trouble with my tomato plant
I have little bugs flying around my tomato plant! How do I get rid of them without hurting the plant? Also, the leaves are starting to turn brown and die - more so than just on the bottom stems; however, the plant continues to grow and bear fruit. Suggestions? FYI - I live in central Florida and the plant is in a pot on my porch. Thank you!

As for the brown leaves, first check that the plant has good environmental conditions. If it's exposed to excessive cold or heat, drought or overwatering, or sunburn, the leaves could turn brown. Also see these articles for more possibilities:
