I just pulled this from my "patio" tomato plant (which is actually in-ground). I'm suspecting late blight. It poured rain all of last week.
So, for those with more experience...is this late blight?
Looks a bit like blossom end rot. I've no experience with blight, but blossom end is from over feeding/watering.
Nah, that's the side of the tomato, not the blossom end. I've dealt with blossom end rot before (only in a container, it's less of an issue in the ground), and it's caused by a lack of calcium, which is why I bury an eggshell with each seedling.
Bacterial, rather than late, blight has been suggested on Twitter when I got a regional gardening group to RT it.
