Yellowing of the older leaves. Wasn't sure what it was when it started but now that it's progressed I'm pretty certain it's a magnesium deficiency.

Plants are recovering from the 2 days wet and cloudy days we had. The weather might have wrecked a few of the first truss megas.

Hoping the young ones will end up looking something like this.

Got one to set. It has a been hot and the plants are looking miserable during the day.

Will have to go with this one. Not sure why but this plant is noticeably less vigorous compared to others.

These larger tomato types hate the fluctuating weather. Of the 14 first truss megas only 1 set. It seems the regular blooms don't want to set either.

Excited for this one. Hoping for decent weather so I can get it set.

Some sunny days later and they're looking good. Depending on how hot and sunny it is, 30% or 50% shade cloth may go on. The sunlight here is intense enough that the plants don't stretch under 50% shade.

Measures a bit over 21" two ways. Unfortunately its stem split over a week ago and now there's a hole straight through it.

Darnit. No BER all season until now. And its on my best one too. It appeared the day after watering.

This one started turning colour nearly 20 days earlier than expected due to stem split.

Have a few others but they're still young. Have had to spray with fungicides a lot more often than expected to keep the plants green.

Any ideas what is causing this on my tomato plants? The leaf texture is off and there a patches of chlorosis. It is appearing on both in ground plants and seedlings in cups.
