Tomatoes and damping off, survived, weird? Help!
I lost a lot of peas and other seedlings to damping off. None of my tomatoes actually died, but several (15/100) appear to have this odd stunted growth and all have the same symptom.
Here are pictures of what I'm talking about. Look closely at the base of the stem. Several are very dramatic, narrowed down etc. but most of the 15 simply have this "Ring" for lack of a better word, going around the base about 1/4" above the soil line..
My question: If I plant these in the garden deeper than that apparent damage will they grow up and be as healthy as their counterparts? Or should I toss them.
