Tomato Plants
Q.

why are there holes in my tomato leaves?

Zone 6A | larryavasdad added on May 30, 2012 | Answered

All the plants (well, all seven) are growing like crazy, strong and robust. However, I see holes, not quite as big as a pencil eraser, on many of the leaves. What's up and what should I do? Thanks!

It could be flea beetles, caterpillars (specifically Tomato Hornworm) or it may be a disease called Grey Leaf Spot.
