was weeding the maters today, noticed on my Trip-L-Crop's the leaves are all curly on the top, leathery to the touch, not so much of a curling, more of a cupping, we've had lots of rain here recently , one of my brandywines is showing the same symptoms,

research today, came up with a varity of problems, i.e. simple le roll to cucumber mosaic virus (pictures hard to see)

Any herbicide used anywhere in the vicinity, at your place or elsewhere, and including weed-and-feed for the lawn?

not me, I don't think my neighbors,
there was a helicopter flying around a nearby corn field last week, not sure if the application was fertilizer or pesticide.

Well, they use broadleaf weedkillers in corn.

And that's the sort of damage such products do to tomatoes.

Might discuss the matter with the farmer in a peaceful and sane way.
