I planted my vines mid may before the endless rains. Now many leaves are turning black in spots. Will this correct itself as things dry out and warm up?

Without seeing your plants it is hard to say for certain what the problem is but this sounds like it could be a fungal disease brought on by all of the rain and the cool temperatures. I have included a link below about growing tomatoes that has more information including control options of fungal diseases. I have also included a link with our most current small fruit and vegetable IPM advisory. This is a newsletter sent out via email that gives up to date information about problems specific to our area to look for in your garden.

If you would like confirmation on the problem with your tomato plants you can bring in a sample to our office at 2001 S. State Street S1200.
