I have had trouble with three of my tomato plants this year - all next to eachother. They started showing signs of deteriorating a few weeks ago with small holes in the leaves and shriveling browning leaves - they almost looked dirty. Growth slowed to varying degrees. Someone on this forum suggested mites but I could find any. Today when I looked I could see lots of little bugs on the bottom of the leaves. They were small but easy to see with the naked eye. Some were greenish and small, some were whitish or brownish and bigger. Could these be mites? Reading online it sounds like mites are much smaller? I'm just trying to figure out best treatment. They are three plants I really don't want to lose. I have pruned aggressively but need to figure out next steps. Thx for any help you all may have.
