I have no idea what is eating my baby tomatoes. All of my tomato plants are affected.
I've inspected every inch of all the plants and can't find the culprit. Please help!!!

Thanks - Linda

Sorry, nothing is eating your tomatoes. Those flowers did not get pollinated so fell off. This mostly happens during hot weather.

Thanks Bernie - I'm so glad it is'nt critter devastation. My tomatoes still have alot of blossoms
so hopefully I'll get a nice crop of tomatoes. Here in southern Utah the heat and humidity
have been fluctuating because of our monsoon season. I'm a first timer at growing tomatoes
so I tend to freak out easily. It's great to have such a wonderful support system as the folks
at DG.

Hi Linda, I had the same thing. Bernie's right, it's the heat and humidity and lack of pollination. I thought something was eating mine until I found dropped flowers.

Add me to that list! Yours look very healthy, though, and lots more flowers and babies are a good thing! What a bizarre year...again!
