So I don't have a pic because I forgot to take one but a couple days ago a couple of my tomato plants had these root looking growth about 2 inches up the main stalk from the ground . They were pinkish purple, about an 1/2 inch long and we're growing parallel to the stock towards the ground. They were thick maybe the width of a phone charger cord. So I had some miracle grow garden soil I bought when it was on sale and mounded it around all my tomato plants about 3" up and out from the stall about a foot. Then watered . Of course then it rained. Does this mean my tomato roots died?? I did prune the bottom leaves off several of my plants a few days earlier because they were close to the ground, some were touching the ground. Did that trigger this root thing to grow? They seem healthy. Are now flowering. I got a few tomatoes already on my yellow Cherry's.
