Bell Pepper Plant has Brown Spots Surrounded by Yellow

Hello,

My bell pepper plants (both red and green) are suffering from some disease. So I'm hoping that you all can help :D

Pepper plant: has brown spots that are surrounded by yellow. There are also small yellow spots all over the leaf (they are visible in the picture). Underneath the yellow spots are small bumps.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I know there are also leaf-miners on the tomato leaf, so you can disregard their tunnels (apparent on the top-right of the photo).. I'll be taking care of those later ;)

Hi Shiva,

Your peppers look like they have bacterial spot. Take a look here.

It appears that your tomato has the same problem.

If the problem with the tomato is predominately on the older leaves it could be early blight.

Usually the lower leaves of my tomatoes look like that so i just pinch them off.
