coutrylady post this in plants and flowers you can get a lot more help there. My first question is water are your over watering or under watering. But post in plants and flowers and Will Creed will see it he is an indoor expert. Bill is also an expert on all gardening subject.

Countrylady,
Welcome to The Garden Helper's Forum,
We're very glad you found us...

I'm going to move your post down into the
FRUITS AND VEGETABLE SECTION, for your tomatoes..

Also, can you tell us a little bit more about your plant??

*What kind of soil did you pot up your tomato plant in, ie; bagged soil or garden soil.
*What are your watering practice's?
ie; morning time, late at night, with a hose,
drip irragation???

Also, would you happen to have a picture for us??
That may help up figure it out a wee~bit faster for you???????

P/S Don't forget to take a peak around, there's lot's to do here, for every season, even thru the long winter months too!!!

Countrylady,
If you go to one of these sites, *and there is other's too, just can't remember the names*....

WebShots
PhotoBucket
Imagestation

It's FREE to download your pictures too....
Then you can attach the URL from the place you choose, copy and paste the URL, then click on the IMAGE botton, and insert the URL into there.
*there will be a highlighted blue http:/ thing there, either delete it or click your backspace button to get rid of it

I hope this helps..
I presonally use the PHOTOBUCKET, very user friendly, and all the people here can see it
once it's linked... some, like Imagestation
you *all* have to be a member to view them.

P/S There's some other gardener's that do use pictures alot and maybe able to help you alot better than I did, Afgreyparrot/Cindy, Loz, Meg, Jiffy, G~mom, plants~n~Pots, Carly....tons of them know how and can give you a hand if you need it....

countrylady,

First of all, what variety are you growing? Some tomatoes are actually normally reddish brown when ripe. There is an entire family of black (which in tomato-speak is a dark mahogany) heirloom tomatoes. Examples would be Carbon, Black from Tula, Cherokee Chocolate.

Barring a black variety, you might be seeing blossom end rot, especially if the aberrant colouration is mostly on the bottom half of the tomato. A picture is worth a thousand words, someone once said ;o)

Cheers,
Julianna

Okay, where did you send your pictures to???

You can directly link them here,
Go to the FULL REPLY button, bottom right
of your QUICK REPLY page...
and it'll then have some *10* buttons to click under that..last one on the second column,
it says IMAGE, click on that one, *****Delete or back space over the highlighted blue htt//: thingie, and paste your URL into there from
your PHOTOBUCKET...

If you can't get it still, *I am a terrible direction giver sometimes, *and I"m sneaking back out side in a bit* PM any of the girls on that first list I gave you, any of them will be able to help you too, they fluently put on pictures here alllot!!!!!!*

Countrylady,
Can you re~do your URL,
it didn't work, and I
tried to fix it, but not sure what to do...

(One Question?
Did you try to link that from your home computer?
I am not sure, but not sure how to do that...
Usually it's done, it's thru one type of those sites..)

Don't give up, try, try and try again...
And experiment,
that's my most favorite thing to do....
Get 3 or 5 of somethings, and try them
all different ways, and see which was was the
healthiest for the plant, easiest for you the gardener, and most successful for both, and cheapest...

(*I'm gonna take a peak at your photo album later tonight, I gotta go take the kids swimmin'!!!*)

You might not want to water the leaves. I'm not sure but I don't think they like that. I could be wrong this is my first year with a garden.

On the image. You need to have the image at a website somewhere rather than on your own computer.

The link you want to put between the [IMG][/IMG]will look something like this

http://www.danstanfield.net/triss/Pics/Unknown%20flowers/pink.JPG

to get this

[Linked Image]

You can find the link by right clicking on am image and going to properties. Copy and paste what is in the address section.

Hope that helps.

Can I ask you if you've gone to one of
the sites we sent you to???

Go to www.photobucket.com

and sign up, there's nothing to it....
*and you can put your photo there,
very easy to do...
there's a box and it will say, BROWSE next to it..
that'll go to where you have it stored on your computer....
Then when you have that picture in that box,
click the button below that says add submit.

KEEP TRYIN', WE'LL GET IT SOON!!!
