What happened to my Tomatoes plants? And what should I do??

They are big boys. Planted in a big planter.. they're ​very small tomatoes. In the middle some branches just died. Never had this happen before.

    This sounds crazy but I have friends who swear by it- try using milk on your tomatos!

    Have you fed them with a fertilizer that is made specifically for tomatoes, such as Miracle Gro for tomatoes or any other vegetable food. You may have purchased a mislabeled plant. Could the soil have dried out, causing the leaves to turn brown? Have you checked for aphids, cut worms or some other pest?

    Do you have some pictures? That would certainly help the rest of us try to help you with your problem.

    Try adding used coffee grounds and leftover coffee to potting soil before planting. Mix soil and coffee grounds thoroughly.

      Were in Florida now. We always had a garden in Michigan. Never had this problem. I will try coffee and the grounds​. Did ever see the branches​ die in the middle and still have life past the deadline part.

    Yes I did. I cut/pruned the dead/brown branches off and tomatoes continued to grow.
