Early Blight? (pics)
3 or 4 of my tomato plants have developed some black spotting. I think it is early blight, but I've looked on some sites and it might also be septoria. It's not too bad yet, just some of the lower leaves and a few middle ones. We had a couple of big rains recently and the leaves got soaked. I try and keep them dry, but nature happens. I had sprayed them a week after planting out with Serenade as a preventative, and I've sprayed them again, now a month later. Also, the weather was pretty chilly for the first month (nights in the high 40s) or so in ground, but it's getting much warmer now (nights in the 50's). If this is early blight or septoria, can it be curtailed. I removed all of the affected leaves that I could find, but in past years once a disease takes hold it's been pretty hard to stop the spread. Also, is Serenade the right stuff to use, or do you recommend something else? This is the part of growing tomatoes that I hate. You try so hard to get it right, but things always seem to happen. On the flip side, the plants in general look great and I've even had some fruit set on my cherries. Anyway, I'd appreciate any suggestions that you all have.
