leaves are starting to turn yellow
will try and post pictures later today. planted 2 tomatilla plants in with the tomatoes. one started growing tall the other kinda looked like its growth was stunted. both lookes healthy. the taller one now is starting to fruit but the leaves are stating to turn yellow and a few leaf curls. the shorter one now seems to look more healthy. any thoughts?? thanks

That's the same thing I am seeing. I added fertilizer and watered it a bunch. There was no apparent impact; of course one could say I prevented it from getting worse

I've tried to attach my tomatillo pictures. I finally got it to work; sorry about some of the pictures being sideways- seemed a good idea to turn the camera at the time. Despite the folder name, they were taken this morning. Hopefully you can see some of the 150 or more fruit growing on each plant right now. It's probably going to kill the plant, but winter is coming, even here, so I'll just wait for the next week or two and see what happens.

Anyone else have their plants do nothing all year then explode with fruit at the end, and if so how do you ensure the plant survives until you get a maximum yield?

Ok, so I'm the only one. Well, there's a precedent :twisted: picked about 20 of them today, are turning purple or tan and coming loose from the plant. Some of the fruit are small; guess that's what happens when you overload the plant.
