URGENT HELP REQUIRED!!

Sounds like too much water to me. It would need to be pretty warm for toms in the ground to need water every two days. Heck, it's in the high 30s here, the toms are in full sun, and I don't water mine more than once a week. But very very deeply when I do water.

Could be. If it is, that makes removing them even more difficult without disturbing the surrounding plants.

Might be an idea to feel down into the soil around the roots of the interloper. It will reveal what's underneath.

Well, they love the heat until it comes to setting fruit. That's the only real issue with heat. Humidity, too, for that matter.

I'd work very carefully if it is rocket. Mature rocket can form a sort of tap root and yanking it unceremoniously might disturb any young beetroots.

Been here - in central Tuscany - for seven years, nadiamaz. Fled Australia to come here. Never regretted it!

They almost look like rocket leaves.
