Is there something wrong with my tomato plant?

infiniti123July 3, 2014

Hello,

This is my first time gardening and I've planted some tomato plants in a raised garden bed. Its kind of a psuedo square ft garden, I didnt have the resources to follow SFG to the tee but its close. If you see the attached picture, the leaves have yellowish brown blotches on them. I had them in the pots they came in for about 1 week before recently transferring it to my SFG. I've been watering the garden daily since its pretty hot out here in Dallas and I see my other pepper plants begin to droop around the evening time. Thanks for your help!

So, what exactly is the mix you are growing in? It looks like it's got a lot of wood in it that's probably locking up all the nitrogen.

Are you fertilizing and what are you using?

The mix is about 20% compost (mostly mushroom compost), 60% miracle gro potting soil, and 10% vermiculite. I am not using any fertilizer other than what is in the miracle gro.

Thanks

A healthy dose of fertilizer is needed stat! Preferably some liquid or water soluble to begin with and water it in well. Your soil sounds ok, but it looks dry, and your plants definitely need food.
