|One of my tomatoes steam has shrunk and died. I have another one that looks not healthy on my pot. I just spray them with fungicide. Since I believe is Mildew. This is a pic of the other one I will like to know if I can do something to save it or I should kill it. Both pics are the same plant, one with flash and one without.

|It may be fungal, which is usually caused by overwatering, but I don't see any evidence of that. I don't think the one in the last pic can be saved, not sure. What kind of fungicide are you using? At what strength? What concerns me is that they are in such a small pot, and the fact that they don't look as if they're outside. Are they? It's past time they should have been moved out in your area. My tomatoes have been planted in my raised bed outside for almost a month now. Fine if you want to grow in pots, I grow in pots, too, but tomatoes need at least a 5 gallon size container each. All of these plants crammed together in this small container will not make it. I would transplant each one to a separate container and place the containers outside now, or plant them in the ground. Your container appears to be one of those earth style planters, and they are sold showing them crammed with plants, but in reality that shouldn't be done. One plant in that container, and the rest in different containers.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
