Tomato Plant Deterioration

I have a tomato plant (not sure of the variety) growing in a Clay pot in a mostly sunny location - when it started to grow it was healthy and bore numerous blossoms and tomatoes. I fertilized it with Miracle Grow. The first tomato had a black bottom - none of the others have this. Something is nibbling on the green tomatoes and eating the leaves as you can see on the enclosed pictures. Also around the pot on the ground there are black "droppings". I have not observed any insects until today when I noticed a single web and a very small black worm like insect - I can't imagine that would produce all the black excrement, but then I don't know what would. The tomatoes are very hard and even the one or two that I took inside to ripen stay very hard. It's very strange. I hope you can figure it out. Thank you!

This is a 4-5 year old Quercus alba that developed 2 clusters of these pine cone like growths last year - mainly on the small trunk. They crumbled easily when the home owner tried to remove them.Now here is a picture of 2 more that are growing on the same tree. Can you help with identification. The homeowner lives in Betterton MD. The tree was professionally planted, is watered properly, and is in full sun. The soil was amended when the tree was planted and is known for being more on the clay side. The tree is mulched but only 1 inch not too heavy. The owner does not want to loose the tree but is concerned with this growth that is re-occurring

I have 4 green ash trees; one is shedding leaves. Most of the leaves have spots as shown in the attached photo. When the leaves drop they turn bright yellow and the spots turn brown. Is this something that can be treated? If so, then with what? A fungicide? Insecticide? The leaf loss seems evenly distributed around the tree; topmost branches seem no harder hit th

One of my 4 green ash trees is starting to drop leaves....not seriously so far. However, most of the remaining leaves have yellow spots as shown in the photo. Leaves on the ground are bright yellow and have brown spots. I'm unable to upload more than a single photo. Do recognize this disease? Can it be treated? If so, with what?This is a young tree ~15-20' tall and can be easily sprayed with fungicide or other remedy.
