..I posted this under organic resources, but thought it might be helpful here as well...

...most of you can self diagnose these symptoms, but noobies like me need visual aids.

I found a great web site with photos of actual leaves displaying various nutrient deficiencies...

here is the link

I can't figure out what is wrong with my tomatoes. Could I send you pics and you tell me what you think?

I went to Green Mama's this weekend and asked Malcolm Beck and he told me what to do. I sprayed them with fish emulsion, seaweed, and liquid molasses and they are looking better already.

Here is how they looked at their sickest.

You were fortunate to have him there to ask! He's a guru on the subject!

The plants actually take the nutrients up better when it is humid. The stomata (especially on the underside of leaves) open up more when the air is humid. It has to do, in part, with transpiration. When it is hot and dry, they close to retain moisture.

For further reading on stomata in reference to transpiration and:
