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.
