Black spots on tomato leaves and tomatoes

hibiscusfan zone5-Northwest Ohio(5 northwest Ohio)October 8, 2013

This year I had some type of fungus disease on my tomatoes. The leaves and tomatoes had black spots on them. Also my cuks and zuchinni turned yellow and died. I was told to spray with a fungicide so I did but they were to far gone. I'm sure some of the fungus has gotton in my compost bed too. Any suggestions as to what I can do next year, can I plant in it,

Impossible to tell from your description just what was affecting your plants. LOTS of reasons why tomatoes can develop spots and not all are fungal issues. And problems which affect tomatoes tend to be quite different from problems that affect the squash family.

Without photos illustrating the problems, it's hard to make assumptions about what's going on but I'm not sure you have a lot to worry about. If you maintain a hot composting process, a great many disease issues will be eliminated. Be sure to rotate your crops for next season.
