WTF is this?????
I've seen MANY postings, this year, from all over the country, with the same symptoms: new growth is twisted and strangely curled....almost cancer/viral-like. In my case, it's my plants in containers, which had sheep manure added to them (too strong?). My plants in the ground (right next to them) are doing just fine (no manure added to inground plants). I've been growing tomatoes for over 30 years, the same way every year, so the manure is nothing new. But this is the first time I've ever seen anything like this happening. I've ripped out & replaced the affected plants, and the same thing happened. No herbicide was used on the property (and why would the ones right next to them be OK???). AND I've planted new ones in other pots, with no manure, and they are fine. It definately seems to be a soil issue, and the manure is the only common factor. My camera is dead, so I can't take more pic's, but here's an old one, from my last post. It's only gotten worse!
