Woody Tomato Stem

June 19, 2013

I have always had great luck with tomatoes in my garden. I am doing the same things I have always done and for some reason this year it seems everything is going wrong with my plants. My major concern is the bottom stems of 3 out 5 of my plants are starting to look like what is shown in the picture.
My leaves are curling up like tacos which I know mean they are stressed but I think its because we have had a lot of rain and not a lot of hot days like I know the plants like. But even though we have had MAJOR rain this summer in CT I don't know if that is what is causing this problem- the brown spots don't feel dry and hallow nor are they squishy.

I mulch with my cut grass and I have only fertilized once early in the season as usual.

Any insight would be helpful.
