My tomatoes are cracking at the top by the stems. Is this because I water too much, or not enough water. I have also read that if the tomatoe plants get too dry, and then I water the plant takes in too much water at once and cracks. What can I do to lessen the cracking problem. Also the birds are eating my green tomatoes on the plant.
Megan is right on with the watering....also if you haven't already, use 3-6" of mulch either wheat straw, pine straw or grass clippings. just make sure it is deep and water good BEFORE putting down mulch
Good luck with your tomatoes
