Q.Wilting Leaves As Indicator To Water
I have my tomato plants in large clay pots. Trying not to over/under water them I have been using the first sign of the plant wilting as a prime indication it’s time to water. Typically every four days this occurs. Part of my concern is not to dry out the yellow blooms when this happens. But yesterday the plant wilted, I watered, and this morning a third of one of the plant’s leaves were yellowing significantly. I assume this sudden change was due to the watering. Can you give me any tips, given the specifics of my situation?

Once you have the schedule, you don't need to wait for the wilt to water. If it wilts on the fourth day, water on the third. The yellowing is probably due to underwatering.
