    Miz Mary,

    It's kind of hard to tell from your description what exactly may be wrong with your toms. I will say that overwatering is one of the most common killers of tomato plant <g>. The soil should be damp/moist, never soggy.

    As to the reaching up ... it could be the need more light. Without seeing the plants and their growing conditions or having a more detailed descpription of the problem, that's the best I can do.

    Sorry, I wish I could help more,

    Nikki

    I am having the exact same problem, and don't know what it is. I thought that perhaps they needed some fertilizer, so I watered them with diluted salmon emulsion.

    Now, of course, things are getting cold, and I'm worrying about the plants being out in my little "Tent" greenhouse... And I don't want to bring them in because they reek of FISH!!
