They look like adventitous root bumps to me - because there are so many, it likely means your plant is/has been very stressed. The usual cause is environmental, that is, things like poor or fluctuating availability of water, too much water, insufficient feeding, possible disease, and generally poor or crowded growing conditions. There may well be a problem ...

I would first confirm that this bacterial wilt. Confirm the disease is present with the below test: Take a knife and slice open a stem along its length. If you see a substance resembling thick white liquid, then you have confirmed your plant indeed has bacterial wilt. With regard to how to save your remaining plants, remove all plants showing signs such as ...

Went out to the internet to look for early blight early blight picturesand gee, bummer, this is what I think you have. Take a look, please send pictures. If this is what you have you HAVE to pull up all your tomatoes and I'd bury them in a place far from your garden and your neighbors. Next year you will NOT be able to plant tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes (...

This looks like blossom end rot. Here is another source of info. According to the second link, which is from Clemson University: After tomatoes are planted, gardeners can minimize the potential for blossom end rot by doing the following: Once transplants become established, encourage the production of a large root system by keeping plants a little ...

A food forest attempts to replicate the multi layer food producing elements the night be seen at the edge of the forest. Trees should be spaced according to their full grown sizes, and berries as well. Pollination should not be a problem since it's carried out by flying insects. Since you're planting different species of plants you don't have to worry about ...

Is this the tomato potato psyllid? Those green bugs are not "The tomato potato psyllid (TPP)" but they are definitely some kind of green psyllids (maybe boxwood psyllids). Do I need to remove the [infected spuds] from the compost pile or is it too late? Psyllids can travel, but I don't think you have an invasive species... so strict quarantining might ...

I concur with Paul Nardini that the purple leaves are due to the plant not taking in enough phosphorus. Necrotic spots can also be a classic symptom. Curled and/or twisted leaves potentially with nectrotic spots are a symptom of copper deficiency, although other things can cause that, too. I honestly don't think you have copper deficiency there, by the way ...

It's a Phosphorus Deficiency. http://www.harvesttotable.com/2009/05/tomato_problem_troubleshooting/ I'd wager that it's the result of too little P to handle that many flowers. I can't tell from the picture if you've got the suckers all pruned. (Suckers are the shoots that grow just above the terminal (sun) leaflets). I would prune that gal if I were in ...

Looks like you have automatic watering. What is the schedule? Doesn't look like you have or will have problems with the dang tap water, this is an annual afterall. Pots GROW GREAT tomatoes!! Just cut off those bottom leaves that are non producers of food for your tomato and cut off those curled leaves. Sterilize bypass pruners with alcohol...keep your ...

It is ok. They seem the extrafloral nectaties common in many Prunus. They just seems larger then normal (but also the petiole seems larger and more red that normal, I think because of late season). See e.g. http://www.botgard.ucla.edu/html/botanytextbooks/lifeforms/antplants/extrafloralnectaries.html or with "Prunus extrafloral nectaties" in Google Image.

It looks as if the roots haven't enough room - how big is the pot the plant is in? And I'm rather wondering if that circular rim I can see sticking slightly above the soil is actually a small pot which has been sunk into a larger one, with the plant inside that. Each tomato plant should be growing in a 5 gallon 9 inch or 27cm pot as a minimum - if the roots ...

Looks like too much water, try some coffee grounds with ground egg shell in it, water it less since the other leaves look healthy, and call me in 2 weeks.
