Bumps and greenish/brown stems near the soil

Hi there, does anyone know why there are little bumps at the base of the roots? Why are my stems near the soil turning a brownish color, they are still fairly green, is this a sign of blight? What do i do?

RE: Bumps and greenish/brown stems near the soil

titterbug,
I put down a link below that I had bookmarked. Since you're in Canada is this a greenhouse grown plant? I know you said stems (plural) but is there only one plant of one variety with this condition? Anyway, there should be some help by comparing the pictures on the link.

Here is a link that might be useful: http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/tomatoproblemsolver/index.html
