First tomato plants ever - Blight or Over Watering?

littlegiles1(8a SC)May 28, 2010

Hello everyone.

I know the topic of blight has been discussed thoughly on the boards and I have been reading threads for hours this morning. My problem is I can't tell if I have early blight or if I'm overwatering.

My Brandywine Pink is planted in a 20gal container with a Yellow Pear. The yellow pear is doing great and has numerous clusters of fruit growing. The BWPink seems to be having a much harder time of things. Many blooms have appeared but nothing comes of them. I have also noticed that the lower leaves of the plant are yellowing and wilting. The upper half of the plant looks good to me.

I have added some pics to hopefully help me get an answer on what to do. These are my first ever tomato plants. There is also a Better Boy tomato right next to the two planted together and it seems to be doing fine as well and I'm having a blast watching my first tomato grow. I'm such a proud papa. LOL

Well, I was going to but I guess I'll have to spend more time searching on how to add photos or post photos in a follow-up message.
