This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Tomato spots

Does anyone know what happened here? A few of my tomatoes are mottled with chocolate brown spots. I've never seen this before. I'm guessing a mold or virus of some kind. Maybe from too much water. I've been lucky this year with no end rot, minimal cracking and nicely shaped tomatoes. This at the cost of a water bill twice my normal (aarrgh!). My guess is the brown is from too much water. Any ideas?

Solanum lycopersicum

From what I can gather it may be rain check.
I have been trying to find out as I have it too.
