Holes on the leafes of my tomatoes

julianpriceMay 22, 2007

My tomato plants have been in the ground from 1 to 5 weeks, depending on when i brounght them. im within a week of getting the first charry tomato of the year but my plants have devolped holes on the leaves.

At the moment my camera does not want to focus right so i cant incluse a photo. the leave is a dark green about as long as a batterie. the spots and very very small holes and around the hoels have browned.

showing one of the leaves. im wondering what i can do to corect this. im in MO in the us and i feed the plants evey week or 2 weeks useing Miracle grow all purpous plant food : http://www.miraclegro.com/index.cfm/event/ProductGuide.product/documentId/637153cfaa6b1ff545c0236933b0a7a4

IF YOUR PLANTS GET INFESTED THE LEAVES WILL LOOK LIKE LACE YOU CAN BUY SPRAY AT GARDEN STORES I DONT LIKE USING THEM . YOU CAN TRY USING A HOME REMEDY THAT IS SAFE .HERE IT IS 6 CLOVES OF GARLIC CHOPPED FINE1 SMALL ONION CHOPPED FINE 1TBSP CAYENNE PEPPER 1TBSP LIQUID DISH SOAP MIX WITH 1QUART WATER LET SIT OVERNITE ATLEAST 4 HOURS STRAIN IT PUT IT IN A SPRAYER BLAST THEM DONT FORGET TO GET UNDER THE LEAVES PS IT WORKED FOR ME
