Leaves appear thicker

jwr6404(8B Wa)June 30, 2012

Here in my PNW area we are still having a cooler than Normal weather envoirnment. Nightime temperatures are in the upper40s-low50s. Some of my Tomatoes have developed thicker leaves with a leathery texture. The leaves are a dark green with no blemishes. Is this a temperature related problem or possibly a desease?

I'm in the Seattle area and my tomato plants look the same...and I don't think it's anything to worry about. The last time -- several years ago -- that my tomato plants looked like this I had a bumper crop. I think we finally are getting some decent weather and the plants are responding with strong, healthy foliage. I've got quite a few tomatoes setting on my plants and am looking forward to eating them.
