I pruned my tomato plants yesterday. Can I use the clippings from the same plant to fertilize it? I currently have put the clippings in the soil around the tomato plant.

That's okay if the tomato plants are disease free. You just don't want to reintroduce disease inoculum. It's best to compost the material and then mulch with the finished compost.
