White Poweder/Granules on Tomatoes!!!

Went to pick a few at a plot I'm renting this morning and there's a white powder - almost looks like salt - on all 13 tomato plants - leaves on the top half of the plant are curling. They were fine yesterday. Acid rain? I'm going to post on the Rocky Mountain forum too - it's also on the mulch below the tomatoes but not on the other side of the garden three feet away where there are peppers, squash, lettuce, etc. Only on the tomatoes - leaves and top of fruits. Any ideas? All the plots are organic so not allowed to use anything bad.

My guess would be powdery mildew

Powdery mildew wouldn't be on the soil.

We need pictures! If none, everything is a guess.
