Something wrong with baby tomato

i_am_gray(5b)June 17, 2012


So my first baby tomato was growing fine until I saw it this morning and it had these teeny tiny brown crater like things and these crater things were not there yesterday morning.

I will say that my tomato plant has some yellow leaves on the bottom due to possible problems in the soil, which was store brought. I have this plant in a container. Though I do have to say that the plant doesn't have any major problems that I can see of and so far it has been growing well.

I will be testing the soil soon so if this problem is related to lack or overdose of nutrients it would be helpful.

Thank you for you help and sorry for the crappy pic, my phone camera sucks. (That second pic with the water on the tomato is not cuz I watered it lol, it rained)

Still no luck. Also, I tried various fixes that didn't work.

One problem is that after "view" is a symbol that GW's software can't deal with (in Preview, it turns into one of those infamous � symbols that show up when you paste from Word or otherwise try to use an accent or foreign symbol that GW doesn't understand); I suspect it shouldn't be part of the address at all, though. [Could you have been trying to copy more than one address/function in Photobucket? I see that particular symbol when I am working in Word's Tables: it shows up at the end of each cell in the table: hence my query as to whether you were trying to copy more than one thing. You've probably never see that symbol before; I recognize it because I use a Word function called Show/Hide which reveals a lot of things that are going on in the background like spaces, paragraph marks, table format when the lines that make up table cells are invisible, etc.]

So in other words, the address is bad and may be a combination of more than one address.

Anyway, here are the Hosta forum's duly-famous Photobucket instructions:

Keep in mind that whatever you see in Preview is what you'll get in the final post (pictures should be visible, and links should go where they're supposed to go). So if it doesn't work in Preview, do something differently the next try.

photobucket gives you a specific html link for each picture that lets you post the picture right here in your post. All you have to do is go to the pic, copy the html code (it begins with Dave

So could someone tell if they know whats wrong with the tomato?? I've tried researching this but to no avail and if it's something I can prevent then I'd like to before the other tomatoes come.

Also is it possible to for a tomato plant to be stunted due to low levels of nitrogen? I tested my soil and the nitrogen level is pretty low and I have a tomato plant that has been stunted but the leaves are green and they are not curling or turning leathery and the roots looked normal too.

Thank you
