Help! Last week I noticed some black curled edges on a few tomato leaves and now
it appears to be spreading fast. It's mostly on one plant but another has
started to show the same symptoms - and I only have 3 tomato plants.
Here's a link to some photos. I appreciate any feedback - thanks!
See http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/tomatoproblemsolver/leaves/index.html for
photographs and double-check for a match.
See http://www.uvm.edu/extension/publications/gardendisease/gd11.htm for control
and care of fungus diseases. Daconil is the fungicide commonly used.

It looks like you may have both early blight (looking at top left picture) and
(top row center).
The previous responder gave you some good links. I had already had
Pat in Plymouth MI
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
Hmmm. My interpretation based on the links of the other responder is that it's
Bacterial Spot. The stated cause is also consistent with what may have happened.
I did plant these in a new location, but it was a location that had peppers last
year. In fact, I left the some of the peppers over winter which may have also
contributed to the problem. Also, the compost I used may have been contaminated
with diseased plants. I didn't know to avoid putting those into compost last
year - doh!
I'll try some copper fungicide and see if I can salvage any of them.
