Interesting... then what is THIS one doing? I assumed the first pics were this same process, earlier on, but this seems to be affecting the tomato it's snuggling with....
That one is harder to diagnose without being able to see and feel it firsthand, but it looks like it might be chemical in nature. I saw spots like that when I tried the vinegar-based weedkiller but didn't spray it thickly enough. Is there anything that might have dripped or sprayed in that spot?
(My second-best guess would be something fungal. Again, hard to tell from just pictures.)
Oooh. you may have just said the magic words. It's both by the gate where the neighbor tomcat might spray, AND it's right by the kale where my mom was chasing cabbage moths with a vinegar/dish soap mix to see if it was worth trying to squirt them (it's not, they move too fast) I bet either mom hit them, or the tomcat did.
Either one would explain a lot.
