My tomato plants have been in the ground from 1 to 5 weeks, depending on when i brounght them. im within a week of getting the first charry tomato of the year but my plants have devolped holes on the leaves.

At the moment my camera does not want to focus right so i cant incluse a photo. the leave is a dark green about as long as a batterie. the spots and very very small holes and around the hoels have browned.
