Hi Walter,
Thanks for talking with me on your show this morning. I have 4 varieties of tomato plants, Big Boy, Celebrity, Purple Cherokee and Juliet Grape. They are all growing in the same area but only the Juliet grape is not showing signs of leaf curl. The attached pictures are of the Big Boy. I know you suspect herbicide but on this part of the yard I don’t use it and there is an empty lot next to my garden so I’m quite sure there has been no exposure. I’m careful with watering and they have not been overwatered and I see no signs of aphids or any other insects. I’m stumped so any advice would be appreciated.

    I think you have both harmless leaf rolling AND herbicide damage
