Help!! pictures of tomatoes leaves drying with white spots

Hi Everyone,
My tomato plants were doing well, and were loaded with tomatoes (green). Then gradually there leaves started turning yellowish from bottom. The leaves are turning yellow with white tiny dots on them. Leaves looks like someone threw dust or soil on it.
Also, green tomatoes stopped growing in size, although they are turning red (the size if smaller as compared to once before having this problem). There are no new flowers coming.

Perhaps mites? Have you looked on the underside of the leaves?

Hi Jean001a,

I tried to look under the leaves but I am not sure how mites looks like. Do I need magnifying glass to identify them.
Also I am having cucumbers with similar problems.

The Small yellow spots -- Perhaps the tiniest of aphids?
