Tragedy has struck!  Our once beautiful tomato plant has contracted White Powdery Mold fungus.  From what I could find on the subject it was caused by poor air circulation from an overly bushy/leafy plant, and from all the rain and humidity we’ve had as of late.  

So, I trimmed.  And trimmed.  The fixes I read all said the infected plant parts needed to be removed.  Unfortunately this also included the green tomatoes already on the vine.  I just didn’t think to snap any photos of the white stuff for you all to see.  Rest assured though, it was every where.  

On the bright side, after I cut away all the old, big leaf growth with the white spots, there was a good bit of bud-activity accompanied by fresh bright green leaf growth.  Huzzah!  Perhaps the plant will spring back.
