A few things I have learned about tomatoes

1. ) Do not water overhead excessively. Instead water at the roots.  Too much water on the leaves can cause a fungus.

2. )Don't walk among the plants while the leaves are wet as you can pass on any diseases to your other plants.

3. )Too much nitrogren fertilizers can encourage the growth of certain fungi
