I have a question about tomatoes, if anyone can look at these and possibly tell me what happened. I'm a total noob at gardening, this is my first year doing vegetables.
I planted my tomatoes (Better Boy, Brandy Wine and Cherokee Purple) eight days ago on last Sunday (March 8th), 7 plants total. It rained almost 4 inches this past week, and I go out and check them today. Almost all the leaves have these brownish splotches on them. The worst 1 or 2 leaves are actually dry where they wilted and curled, but the rest are not dry to the touch at all. But the interior has these brown splotches. The only thing I can think of which might have failed is when I initially planted them, water was having a hard time penetrating this soil and may not have wetted the rooted sufficiently, although I must have given them a good 4-5" of water.
Conditions: 18" raised concrete beds, Austin's Natural Gardener organic garden soil, 1-feeding of Natural Gardener organic fertilizer at planting.
Does anyone know what these brown splotches mean and what should have preferably been done? Thanks!
