Holes in Leaves
I live in San Jose, CA and have about 12 tomato plants in the backyard. They are about 8 weeks old, growing well, and I am starting to notice holes in the lower leaves of the plants that are on the perimeter of the garden. The holes are sort of random, like a shotgun blast, 1/8 - 3/8 in diameter and look like something is eating them away. I also notice black, powdery reside, kind of like very small pellets that brush off.
This morning I went out about 5:30am as I thought it might be snails. We have had snail problems in the back and I wasnt sure if this was related to that or not. No snails at all on any of the leaves.
Also, the tomato fruit itself does not appear to be affected at all or show any signs of being eaten.
I tried to provide picture but the image was to large, I can email to you though if that helps.
