:Hey Nicky,
I live in Washinton state. One problem might be the soil quality. tomatoes need alot nitrogen and when they dont get it they seem to flop.Try putting some lyme in the soil mix next year before you plant and either till it in or mix it. My fience and I started our fist garden ever this year and have had great luck, We put lyme,steer manure, and epsigrow(walmart sells it ). We also used godd ol miricle grow. Tilled it all in and everything has gone crazy our zuchinni is hudge the accorn squash is as big as a basketball, and our tomatoes are at least 1 and a half pounds each.
Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK, Trish from wa
