Yours is a real 4x4 Clari 

Nowadays there are some cars that just pretend, like normal cars but on steroids

Greenhouse tomatoes and eucalyptus tree

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 07:03

Chilli plants prefer dryer soil than that needed by tomatoes, so if the plants are in the ground, the fact that the chillies are thriving suggests to me that the problem is down to drought, particularly as the tomato plant nearest the tree is the worst affected.

You don't say what your watering regime is?

It sounds as if the curds are getting too much sun - fold the leaves over them, even break some leaves off and lay over the curd, to shield them from the sun.

Morning Clari   that sounds like a vast improvement 

Help! Little trees growing everywhere!

Yes, it sounds like suckers from a Robinia pseudoacacia rootstock - just keep mowing/cutting them back as they appear.  The roots will run out of energy and the suckers will stop appearing.
