I planted this "gold rush" about a week ago. The plant has taken off, but the leaves have some weird spots on them... and it seems to be spreading!

The pictures are attached below with the link.

If you have trouble seeing them plz let me know! any help will be greatly appreciated. thanks

Here is a link that might be useful: Tomato

rickcef, the address of your link appears to be Yahoo's email. Unfortunately we can't see anything from an email account. What you can do is to post a photo from your hard drive onto Photobucket, a free picture-hosting site (or a similar site like flickr), and then post it here.

Here's are some detailed instructions, courtesy of the Hosta forum:

If that doesn't work, you can look at these photos of tomato leaf problems:
Cornell's page on tomato leaf symptoms

Good luck.

It is randomized over the plant which usually indicates pest activity. Pests such as leaf miner flies laying eggs or aphids or spider mites.

I would examine the plant very carefully for signs of any pests and removes ASAP all of the affected leaves and dispose of them carefully. Then monitor the rest of the plant for further developments.

One other slim possibility but cannot tell from the pics is the very early stages of disease, most likely Bacterial Spot, but I would expect to see more leaves involved if that. Still if it continues to develop I'd do some research in BS treatments.

Environmental stress, even though for a brief time.

Ran short of water -- perhaps excess heat but not direct light; perhaps more breezy than usual; perhaps a combo.

The key diagnostic point is that the damage is in the areas at the end of the water supply -- between the veins.
