I have a tomato planted in a pot and now it has black spots all over it. What can I do? Is it a bug?

My nanna says that to get rid of Black Spot on roses; mix 1 cup water, 1 tablespoon bi-carb soad/baking soda and spray on the leaves and around the plant. Not sure if this is the same sort of black spot, but I highly doubt it would damage your plant if you tried anyway.

I have Roma and Grape tomato plants that have loads of fruit on them -- the vines are another story! They were all in good shape until a month ago, when leaves started turning yellow with black spots. I sprayed some insecticidal soap on them a few times, and cut off the bad foliage but they continued to deteriorate.

I have a tomato plant with leaves that are turning yellow with black spots. I transplanted it two weeks ago into a plastic container.I don't have any green space to plant it in ground. What is the problem and what do I do?
This looks like a disease. ANy number of plant antifungals should help. As well, water the tomatoes a lot but during the early day so that the moisture at night does not contribute to the problem.
This is a disease. You need a fungicide.
