first two photos show the "stunted" tomato plants
3rd photo shows my main bed, and they are several feet taller. all planted around the same time (maybe a week difference) and all my beds have the same mixture of dirt... the only difference is 2 of the beds are not as deep as my main bed.

Welcome, welcome!!

All I can think of is different light conditions and maybe different fertilizer amounts?

Yes, I have an infestation of rubber snakes and plastic reptiles from the Dollar Store; they are cheap, re-usable and EFFECTIVE!!! (Second year using them; I just HATE watching a tomato ripen, only to have my anticipation go for naught just because a varmint took one bite or one peck . . . and this caused the tomato to rot!!) To keep the varmints from getting used to them, thus ignoring the danger of getting "bit", I move them around almost daily.

Hardly ever true that seller is grower.


We are really lucky here that our local farmers markets require that everyone be a local grower/producer. It makes for such a better experience. Thumbs up I'm fortunate enough to be with 10-20 minutes of 3 different farmers markets, and they all have a different vibe/feel. My favorite is the one that has the most produce growers Smiling

Hi every one, I hope I am not butting into this conversation with my question, and if I am I apologize to you for it. I am still a little new and am not sure how to post a new off subject question in "tomato chat thread" without just going to "post a reply" as I have done here.
Anyway, my question is this, I seem to have picked up a little Septoria Leaf Spot on my patio tomato plant. It is about 16" tall and is otherwise a strong healthy plant. The fungus is confined to the 2 lowest branches on it and all the others seem healthy. I started treating it with Neems Oil about 3 weeks ago and it hasn't shown any improvement. It might still be a little soon for results but I don't want to go on doing what I am doing if you all think I should be trying something else.
Thanks in advance for all the help you guys give me. Rich

Cut off any of the lowest branches that show any yellowing of leaves. I have never found Neem to help with any of the tomato fungus issues. Better choice in fungicide would be Daconil.

@betnc I'm not naked, my chicken was. Long story, but a young chicken on the low end of the pecking order was plucked nearly featherless. We rescued her and she got the name naked chicken. She is now gone after a long life, but we named our farm after her. There is a facebook page of the same name.

Thanks Rita, the infected branches are gone and I will get some Daconil and spray all the tomato plants tomorrow. Just to be safe. Rich

You might or probably will get more yellowing of bottom leaves. If that happens just continue to cut those leaves off and yes, giving them a good spraying with Daconil should help.
