    Do you mix all of them together and then spray? How often do you use them?

    The nutrients get all mixed all together as recomended by the mfg. but the first time I foliar feed I use half strength then a week later I re-feed at full strength then feed weekly.
    When I feed them I spray the leaves in the evening and spray the leaves until the nutrient mix starts to run off the leaves.

    It's been hot out here, right around 90 or so with a heat index in the 100s. Everything is looking good except for some leaf curl on the tomatoes but I think it might be do to the heat so I'm soaking them good in hopes that it helps.

    This is the first time that I have had stems/suckers growing off leaf stems.

    Pictures coming soon.

    Just a quick update, everything is looking good and the tomatoes are setting lots of bud. The tomatoes are still growing very fast, average height is right around 36 to 48 inches. That's about 16 inches a month or right around 1/2 inch per day.
    If I remember correctly I counted 40 buds on the campbells 1327 but the JTD's ain't far behind. There are tons of growth off the leaves of all the tomatoes and that growth is producing lots of buds also.
    We installed the drip irrigation and the plants are getting heavily watered as a flush before switching the nutrients from one for growth to a mix more for fruit production.
