I didn't get any response to this last week, so I thought I'd give it one 
more try:
<< My tomatoes all had a mildew on them that I was able to get rid of by 
 removing infected leaves and by spraying with Daconil. 
     One of my tomatoes is a determinate bush type (Better Bush Pink) though 
 and I hate to remove more leaves because it is slow to replace them. There 
 are still spots on the plant's leaves that look like little canker sores 
 the bottom and yellow spots when viewed from the top.
     Should I go ahead and remove all these leaves too? It is starting to get 
 rainy again...can the mold reactivate? I would be removing about 80% of the 
 leaves, but am willing to bite the bullet if it's in the best interest of 
     I had to remove a similar percentage from the indeterminates, but I 
 didn't mind and they have done a good job of growing new leaves. 
         Thanks as always for all the great advice,
         --Michael  >>
