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.

That depends on if you eat vegetables raw, and how paranoid you are. Properly cooked veg should not be a problem. If you are paranoid, just don't put pond water on root vegetables, or cook them well. Turtles can also carry salmonella.

You only need to be worried about some pathogenic e coli that can be incorporated into plant tissues. And generally these are not found in aquatic environments. The other bacteria, viruses and amoebae can be washed off. In all cases, all are destroyed in cooking. People use fish ( unsure about turtles ) in aquaponics systems where the waste water is ...

Looks like two issues. The crystal / sand paper effect on the leaves may be edema, look it up on google images. Not sure what the brown could be though.

If you want to get the best from magnolias, treat them as lime-hating plants That means ericaceous compost, slow-release ericaceous fertilizer, and no hard tap water! They will certainly tolerate some lime, at least when grown directly in the ground in UK climate and weather conditions. But remember the general principle that whatever goes into a pot stays ...

The light green areas are chlorosis, often an indication of iron or manganese deficiency. Magnolias are very quick in developing chlorosis if they don't have enough iron available - typically not because there is too little in the soil, but because the ph is too high, which binds the iron so that the plant can't pick it up. First, if you have hard water, ...

Your picture shows that new growth has almost enclosed the old bole. As time goes on, the gap will close and new wood will be added each year all around the trunk. Structurally the tree will be okay for at least a decade or two or more. Along this 'seam' and its edges, however, it is (almost) certain that branches will never develop. In other words, that one ...

I have a very similar issue with Lupins, 2 plants bought at the same time that have previously flowered well in the same bed are being stripped of the flowers, just leaving a damaged stem, I have no issues with slugs or snails, the plants leaves are good, however one plant is affected and the other is not, the damage is being caused by Sparrows seeking bugs ...

It's damping off disease - hopefully, you're not overwatering now, and the rest of the plant still looks healthy, but you may find, as its a fungal infection in the soil, that the rest of it goes the same way, though that's uncommon in more mature plants like yours. Good airflow round the plant helps to keep this at bay, but there is no effective fungicidal ...

Had a bit of trouble working out what your container looks like, but you seem to be saying its five feet long, by 9 inches wide with a depth of 7 inches from top to bottom. Jury's still out on whether you really mean 7 inches wide and 9 inches deep from top to bottom, that's what I'm not entirely sure about. Either way, 10 morning glories and 8 trailing ...
