    My tomatoe plants are a little water logged. They have turned a little yellow. What can I do to bring them out of this??


    Maybe some fertilizer?

    I don't know what stay dry is, but if it's like Turface or kitty litter (calcined clay), it works great!
    Reb, are you a mater man, too? Man of many talents:cheers:
    Do NOT fertilize plants weakened by soggy soil, BTW.

    Just tilling would help a little I'd say break up the crust on the soild surface and aerate it, never used the stuff everyone else is talking about.

    In the long run some organic matter (mannure) may help more than anything :shrug:

    I think what I will do is till the rest of the garden and plant everything else and see how they look after the weekend. The ground shouldn't be to wet anymore.
