I have some tomatoes growing in containers and in a raised garden. One plant (which is a cherry variety) in a 5 gallon bucket is turing weak and yellow and some spots are showing up on the leaves. Also some of the other leaves are curling. is this blight? something else? If it is blight are there any solutions? From my searches it seems that blight is the kiss of death for a tomato plant.

here are the photos...

Any help is appreciated!

Hi, hwgates. You might want to post this on the regular Tomato forum, as not too much happens on this sub-forum.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Blight." Some people use the word "blight" to refer to any tomato problem. But there are dozens of diseases, caused by different organisms and treated in different ways....

Well, anyway. There are three diseases with "blight" in their names. Your close-up photo is definitely not Late Blight (which is absolutely fatal, and I've seen too much of it); it doesn't resemble any Early Blight I've seen (Early Blight isn't as bad); I'm not familiar with Southern Blight. [Just to complicate things, Late Blight isn't always late, Early Blight isn't always early, and Southern Blight doesn't only happen in the South.]

I'm not sure what your tomato's problem is, but if you post your photos on the other forum, there are people who know a lot more than I do and can identify almost anything.
