You can grow your own food. And we can help!


The leaves on my tomatillo plants have been turning yellow and dropping off. They're both still setting fruit and the fruit seems to be growing, but I'm worried the plants have some sort of virus. I thought at first they were just reacting to all the rain we've had recently, but fertilizing is not helping. Anyone know what this could be?
I polled our facebook group on this and three potential causes were given: 1) calcium deficiency 2) phosphorous deficiency or 3) watering problem, either too much or too little. Do any of these sound like they could be the explanation? If you have a picture, that would be helpful.
