It's been about a month since I planted this "Lemon Boy" tomato in this paper pot. See my initial post here. The tomato plant has grown well and has the beginnings of flowers. One problem I am seeing is the yellowing lower leaves. With all the rain we have received over the last month, this plant is suffering in this pot. Because the bag is coated with a plastic like finish, the excess water has nowhere to go.
Luckily the last few days have been sunny, more or less, and the soil has had a bit of a chance to dry out. However, we have more rain forecast for this weekend too. I'll see how the plant does. I really don't want to have to abandon the trial and remove the plant to another location. Fingers crossed for a full season in this paper pot. I will keep you updated once a month on the progress.
