Hi, I have a garden of 4 tomato plants. My issues started on a new plant that was just released this year by Bonnie, the Cherokee Carbon. Started out noticing yellow blotches on the leaves then realized they have a brown fungus/dust growing on the bottom.

Since then it has made a ten foot jump to my Mr stripey plant but hasn't gone crazy like it has on the Cherokee plant. It also went to Mr stripey's neighbor plant but again, not as bad.

I haven't done much in the way of disease prevention, never have and this is the first year I've had issues. I did start using "Garden safe neem oil extract" for pest control, the bottle also claims that it is a fungicide as well. However I haven't used it much on the tomato plants.

I did give all four a good soaking with it yesterday to try and kill / stop the spread of this fungus then went through today and performed a decent hair cut removing all affected leaves.

Is there anything I can do to kill this fungus? Or are my plants doomed?

Scroll down until you find 'Leaf Mold' - I suspect that is your problem.

Awesome, thanks so much. Looks very much like what I have. I had done a fair bit of research and only saw one case that looked like what I have and no one ever named what it was or told how to treat it. Thank You!
