White "sores" on tomato stems

kelly014May 6, 2013

Hello! I'm new here and a bit new to gardening. We just got our tomatoes in the ground and I'm noticing some large, sticky white spots on the stalk and stems on my tomatoes. The leaves don't really seem affected, except maybe some of the bottom leaves look a bit wilted and yellowed. The sores on the stem sort of "burst" when I touch them. l've looked at a few lists of tomato diseases but can't quite pinpoint what it might be. Any insight would be muh appreciated! I've also attached a photo. TIA
