I have 55 tomato plants with 18 different varieties. I planted them April 30th, and we've had cool (not cold) wet weather ever since in So Md. Today, after a couple days away from the garden, I saw two plants, different varieties, opposite ends of the garden, with most, if not all, the leave shriveled and brown. The stems looked still green for the most part. One variety is Heidi (plum) and one is Orange Beefsteak. IN both cases, other plants of the same variety are unaffected.
I can lose two plants, and still have over 50 -- my worry is, what if it spreads? Two weeks prior to planting, based on a soil test, we tilled in calcitic lime, potash, Epsom salts, and cow manure at recommended rates. The garden is covered with landscape fabric weed block, has soaker hoses (though it's rained the last eight days, so haven't needed those much), and is fenced from predators. I'm stumped. I would like to attach a picture, but don't know how.
Does anyone have any ideas?
