What is your take on these pics...there are no leafhoppers but the leaves are curling.

Friends....thanks for any help.. Sunny put these up for me, and yes I could not finish the upload for these tomatoes.
They have been getting regular rain, so not too dry. One has several green tomaties, all have a lot of flowers.
Any and all responses are welcomed. Thanks in advance.

Verticillium wilt fungus or Fusarium wilt fungus maybe? https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/wilting-tomato-plants.htm

Well, I hope it is not the above, but sounds likely...I was thinking curly top virus, but I cannot find any leafhoppers

I guess I will let it go then when the plants are gone, cover the pots with black trash bags and let it go until 2022..Sadly I have some green tomatoes.

You'll just need to wash the pots with bleach for next year and throw away the soil that is in them now.

I am hoping that it is just leaf roll...which sometimes happens if they have too much nitrogen kissie

I cant see tooo much wrong with the leaves except a little discolouration which could be from the Pic itself . Tomato leaves will tend to curl for a variety of reasons some being "Wind " for instance , water imbalance etc .
If the plant itself is still going along healthy let it go.
Tomato plants dont like wet feet and keep the leaves from touching the soil as the plant progresses as that could lead to fungal diseases.
If your getting too much rain well theres not too much you can do except wait for it to ease and let your plants pick up.
Keep a look out under the leaves of your plants make sure you arent getting White fly with tooo much humididty and spray acordingly without the use of poisens if possible , plenty of youtube vids on home remedy sprays you can make up..

It would not go with my supper tonight, so I left it on the vine. I will eat it tomorrow..perhaps for lunch. I will be sure to let you know how it was...what kind of tomatoes did you plant, Sheri ??

Sunny how are your tomatoes doing?

Junie, I planted Cherokee Purple (my favorite), a black krim, one cherry tomato which has put out hundreds of tiny tomatoes already, and a beefsteak.

When do you pick the Cherokee purple tomatoes, Sheri. I tried to grow them 2 times in the past. Each time I got one tomato and they both were rotten.

I have a patio tomato - that us the one that I got the ripe one from.it will be part if lunch today ..then I have what us called an Arkansas tomato, a Brandywine and some kind of cherry tomato. I dont think it will make many tomatoes though

The cherokee purples look sort of rotten when they're ripe. Very dark inside. But I pick mine when they just start to turn and then I put them in a bowl with apples and bananas to ripen.

Tonight my tomatoes have army worms. I don't usually use a pesticide but I'm going to get one tomorrow or these worms will eat everything.

I'm bringing in 50 cucumbers a day. Wish there was a way to keep them all winter.

Thanks about the Cherokee purple tomatoes. Sorry for the worms. Good luck getting rid of them.

Could you dehydrate your cukes and then store them in the freezer ? That and/or you could try freezing the fresh ones cut up in slices. I would think they would be ok in salads when thawed...you should give both ideas a try this one year.

I looked online and found that they can be frozen if they're brined. It's called refrigerator pickles.

I make refrigerator pickled beets. Thing is when I was moving, I accidentally got rid of the recipe book that had my favorite pickling recipe in it.
It had whole cloves, a cinnamon stick, sugar and the liquid from canned beets.

I will find it at some point.

Do you mean you make a pickling liquid, the put it on the cut up cucumbers then freeze it ???
