Roma Tomatoes Stunted?
My Sweet 100s have reached over 6 feet and the vines are loaded. I looking forward to snacking on these babies. All and all, the tomatoes are looking good except the Roma. Initially my concern was the Amish Paste. It has taken off, and now I'm worried about my Roma. I mean far behind. It appears that the Roma's growth has been stunted. It is producing fruit, but it is not progressing upward like the other tomatoes. Mama is worried about her baby, so I'm going to give it a few doses of fertilizer over the course of the next few weeks and see what happens.
My Roma is pictured below. See she has barerly gotten off the ground. I was expecting it to reach at least 4 feet, she's barely 3 feet. I'm hoping for a good harvest, I had planned to use these particular tomatoes to can for chili and spaghetti sauce this winter.
