Hi all

I planted my yearly 3 tom plants about a month ago and they've been 
looking great up until about 4-5 days ago I noticed a lot of black marks 
on the leaves and stalks, almost look like ink stains. I'm a little 
worried that I'm losing them, and I'm not sure what to do?So early in the 
season for these kinds of worries. One of the poor sick little things has 
a set a fruit hope I can at least get a few more this year   I'm familiar 
with fusarium wilt this doesn't look like it, although  I do have that in 
my tiny patch. I know that other than dig out and dispose of the soil I 
can only plant resistant plants and get as much fruit as I can before 
they succumb.
Any suggestions?

hope you all have better luck than me.
