I hear ya'...I've been watering directly into the ground around our fig trees, as the fruit has stopped growing! and leaves burning around the edges!!

I enjoy being with a group who like to share their "Hosehead" experiences, to remind me I am not alone.

RE: Any gardeners here ?
Now that it is harvest time for some garden crops where I live, we have encountered a problem that puzzles both my husband and myself. When we planted tomatoes, we planted several kinds so we would have some to eat fresh and some to can or make into juice. What we are finding is that some of the really ripe tomatoes have split open. Can anyone tell me if it is any particular variety that is prone to this or is it because we've had a fair amount of rain during the ripening process?

My understanding is that splitting can be caused by over watering tomatoes.


But, I have the opposite of a green thumb - so what I say is probably wrong.

We 'suspected' as much, however when Mother Nature decides to send rain we have no choice but to accept it and then some. One day between the time when hubby planted the tomatoes and now, when it is harvest time, we received 4 inches of rain in less than 24 hours. We were glad to get the rain as our grass had turned brown from lack of moisture. It was sort of a "double-blessing" as during the drought we didn't have to mow lawn. Now that rain has returned we mow every week and did I mention how tired I am of mowing? Oh-jeez

Next year make the bed you plant them in deeper - maybe put 12 inches of rocks on the bottom so the water from the rain can drain out away from their roots.

As others have said, when it rains a lot (or you over water), tomatoes split. That is when I make salsa, Gazpacho, sauce etc. No sense in crying over split tomatoes!
