Starting to get my first toms of winter, now have to try and save the plants during a mid 30's cold front and 25mph winds!!

I'm spraying every 10 days with a compost tea I brew, I think maybe thats the trick. Also spraying the white flies with neem oil and safers insecticidal soap, trying to stay organic. Fertilizing with espoma tomato tone, 3-4-6, every 10 days. I also water with the compost tea when I spray. The plants with ripe fruit now, were planted in the final container in mid October. With a little luck and les wind and cold, I hope to have a steady supply of toms into April, early May.
The Orange/red toms are Hillbilly, also pictured are Black Ethiopean, Purple Russian and Abe Lincoln. The smaller toms are Livingston large cherries and a smaller cherry type.
