We had amazing tomato plants last year with tons of great looking and tasting fruit. We started our tomatoes inside this year. The starts looked awesome and were beetween 6" and a foot tall when we transplanted them to the garden. We gave them a week of acclimation during the day. We transplanted them to a bed that had never had tomatoes before to avoid disease. The bed was layered with llama manure and maple leaves in the fall, which decomposed nicely over winter. We dug wide furrows to keep the decomposing leaves away from the new plants. The tomatoes immediately yellowed after transplanting. I dosed them with some worm compost tea to give them a boost, but they continued to yellow. Now they all look like this picture. What's up?
Yeah, that's too bad! I've had some problems this year too. The humidity and temperature swings aren't working well in my garden. What had been my best tomato start from seed seems to gotten a similar blight. It's really frustrating. I'm going to try giving extra nitrogen. Then even if it dies at least the soil will be good for fall planting.
