I was pretty disturbed when I found this along the stem and up some of the branches. Can anyone identify this? I am afraid it's a fungus, and that I'm going to be out of luck with my tomatoes this year, because I don't want to INTRODUCE a disease to the soil. Anyone who can offer help would be appreciated! I can "scratch" this off with my finger nail, and it almost feels gel-like, watery almost.

Also, we're getting unrelentless storms this week. Here's a picture of the hail from today...
I got to garden with another friend right before the onslaught of this storm. I'm really excited about how cute her garden is going to be! I love how beneficial having a "trend" like gardening can be!
