Spots on tomatos

I have looked through the other posts but can't find anything that looks just like this. I have grown these plants from seed, they were outside for a couple weeks before planting in the garden,and they have been in the garden now for about 2 weeks. They were looking just great, but I went away for 2 days on Fri and Sat and when we got back they had these spots on all the older leaves. The tops of the plants all look good. I garden completely organic, so I won't spray with a chemical, but knowing what it may be would allow me to use the best organic remedy for that problem. it may take me a bit to get a pic here so you may need to look in the next post to find them. Sorry. Julie

Not a disease. Instead, environmental stress.

What kind of environmental stress would they have gotten? They were really hardened off before planting, were planted in the evening, had the right amount of rain, and didn't show spots for more than a week after planting. What kind of stress should I be looking for? Thanks, Julie

Winds, or even breezes, can stress recent transplants, as can higher than previously experienced temperatures.

Well, I will just be happy that they aren't being devoured by some unknown bug. Thanks. :-) Julie
