Verticillium wilt on the heirlooms?

Boo...something is making my heirlooms very unhappy, and I think it's a very bad thing. I thought it was because I added a bit of lime to them a week ago (they're in containers, and I had blossom rot), but now I think it looks more like verticillium wilt...but not sure. I have more photos, I just don't have time right now to upload them. What do you think is going on? Thanks!!! It's my first stab at heirlooms, and I really want them to LIVE. If it is V Wilt, should I move my eggplant away from them?

Verticillium would be expected in a container only if some contaminated garden soil is in the growing media.

Hmmm...I've only got potting soil in there. Any other ideas for what's going on then?
