They were big and beautiful yesterday morning. I watered them with compost tea made from my composter that had been diluted with an equal amount of water. I also watered my peppers with that same solution. This morning the peppers and squash are looking great but the tomatoes look horrible. Did the compost tea do this or do I possibly have a fungal disease? This is the first year I grew big tomatoe plants
and I finally thought I was going to get some!

It looks like the leaves are burned. Are only the bottom leaves affected? Did you splash the tomato leaves with your compost tea while they were in the sun?

More I think about it I do believe I Splashed . I agree them with the solution. I'll need to be more careful in the future! Hopefully I haven't killed them all.

Do you think I should pinch those leaves off now? It's a fair amount of the lower leaves.

Although ugly, those leaves are still useful as long as there is some green. When leaves are no longer needed, the plant will boot them off.
