yellow AND brown leaves on tomato plant

Grantsboro, NC(Zone 8b)

What am I not doing right? It has 5 green tomatoes and I don't want to lose them. I have had bad luck with tomatoes since moving to the coast.

Lisa ~ there were a couple of links with really good photos of different tomato issues. Do you have any of those sites saved?

I'll have to look back through the external hard drive computer crapola.

LavinaMae, maybe we can help in spite of no photo...

Here are a couple of sites with photos if you can access them.

Question, are the yellow/brown leaves at the bottom of your plants?

Or are the leaves all throughout the tomato plants turning... Kristi

Yes, but not on the iPad Cornell and A&M have some good pictures maybe you can google them? I'll try to get back to it but it won't be until tomorrow.: )

O.k ~ I hope this is the correct one from Cornell http://vegetablemdonline.ppath.cornell.edu/DiagnosticKeys/TomLeaf/TomLeafKey.html#Irregular


And the A&M site which has some good photos that should help ID the problem:

Hope this will help LavinaMae.

Thanks folks
I put some miracle grow for tomatoes on the plant and its looking better.
I also live at the coast and with the storms we have had lately it could be salt damage.
I am going to put some fish emul. maybe on it in a week or so I will let you know what happens.
