I recognized it as granite right off the bat.
I was amazed at how well the plant looked growing right out of solid rock at first.

The shiny look to it is need oil that was sprayed upon the plant earlier.
Here are more photos of the plants. It was bright out so hopefully the photos look decent enough.

You should fluff the soil around the plants a bit, looks a bit compacted, maybe due to heavy rains? Tomatoes don't like compacted soil.
Those plants look beaten up badly. Were there serious winds? It does look environmental so all you can do is wait for them to grow new leaves.

Winds were 30-40 plus heavy rain. The potato leaf plant not shown in the same bed is fine. These plants are getting pulled and replaced with Big Beef or something a little more hardy from my previous growing years. The tomato plants in the other bed get more shade and more elemental blockage due to a slated fence on one side.

From everything you said here is what I think happened. You fertilized and the heavy rains came. When it rains the plants uptake of the fertilizer increases. Plus the soil was probably too wet. Double whammy.


When the plant gets to much fertilizer and the soil is wet and then the sun comes out the leaves will burn. Happened to me before. you can try to shade them when this happens. I think those plants will survive, they are still green. I have seen plants in worse shape survive. But you can't go wrong replacing them either. Good Luck

it just looks like sunscald to me in the first pic, but neem oil? that can cause phytotoxicity if it is sprayed in high heat. the other pictures look like burn to me. either from the neem oil itself or the plants got wet and sunburned in those spots. the cuke in the back ground has the same burn on it.

The neem was applied after the fact.
The plants kept shrivelling and starting turning black in places. No time for that nonsense.

You know, I have a pepper plant that has those same markings. Not sun scald as sun scald makes the leaves brittle and rough. Mine (I believe like yours) just have those white markings on the leaves but have the same texture as the rest of the leaf. Only happen on one pepper plant and it is still growing strong.

Where are you located? This sounds like grey mold or, I hate to say it, late blight.
