Tomato leaves shriveling up and dying

Posted by ickysgirl70 4a (My Page) on

My tomatoes are large healthy looking with thick, strong stems and are full of flowers and are producing fruit, but I am afraid they will not survive my short season here. The leaves are shriveling up and dying. This starts with the tips tuning grey and crusty overnight and within a few days the whole leaf is dead (if I leave it on the plant). There is NO yellowing of any kind so I know it's not a blight. I keep removing the damaged leaves and I've given a tomato fertilizer. They are getting water, not too much and not too little. I have no idea what this could be and all of my searches for information or photos turn up only yellowing leaves, which mine are not. Can somebody help me please?

Gray & crusty usually means too little water.

Is it possible you can post a photo?

I can try to post a picture. It was getting dark by the time I'd thought about it. I'm sure to have more leaves like this tomorrow.

I don't think it's too little water because the leaves never droop or wilt. They stand tall and strong.
