What is causing the brown leaves and stems near the bottom of the tomato plants. I usually water every other day at least. This is central Texas and very hot weather. High 90's and plus. It is back yard garden second year.

It sounds like a lack of water but I'm really not sure, I haven't done growing it that hot of temperatures over long periods of time. Make sure when you water that you really let the water soak in deep into the soil so the roots can get at it.

Thanks, I think your right I started watering more and they are improving. Some plants don't need as much though, like corn and certain hot peppers.
