I picked 4 or 5 tomatoes yesterday. Today I got about that many, mabe a few more. The plants are loaded with tomatoes, I just hope I can figure out my problem with the plants as they are kind of thinning out towards the bottom. Likely some fungus.

Here's a picture of the few tomatoes from today.

Ours aren't showing any color yet, but with this heat it won't be long.

Yellow leaves with brown pots? Or yellowing leaves with microscopic white pin pricks all over them?

First case, Daconil. Second case, Kelthane.

How are your big ones doing?

Big ones are looking pretty good. They're getting big. A few of the Cherokees have a black spot on the bottom. That's something else I've got to figure out. I'm hoping a simple herbacide or fungicide will fix me up. :shrug:

Black spot on the bottom is blossom end rot and is caused by a calcium deficiency. It will likely affect all maters on the plan if you don't treat it.

Calcium chloride ( ice melt pellets) dissolved in water and applied to the soil as a drench is very effective. About 3TBS in a gallon of water.

You can also buy CaCl solution in spray form.

What do you need a herbicide for?

To be honest, I'm not sure what I need. I'd like to get them back healthy. I'll put some CaCl solution on them this evening or tomorrow.

Thank you!

It won't help the ones that are already affected.

I have some CaCl if you need some.
