I appear to have the same thing - yellowing leaves starting on the outer edges, brown areas that are dry. My plants where this is happening are Red Brandywine and Eva Purple Ball. They plants have been healthy and flowering and setting fruit. The leaves with this condition are at the very bottom of the plants...i.e. some of the oldest leaves. It has been a little wet lately, but for the most part, we've been having a dry summer in the Philly region. Do I need to worry, or just let it go? I've attached a photo. Any idea what's causing this?

Bella: Some of my Red Brandwines have the same problem and I just keep cutting the dead yellow branches off. Mine also is at the bottom of my plants. And I also have flowers and fruits on mine. I haven't posted the problem here because I have so many other, seemingly more serious problems, with my other tomato plants and did not want to overwhelm this site with different photos of different problems. I will be interested if someone replies to your post, and maybe I can solve my problem too. And we have had real wet weather here in Georgia, all spring. Have not had to water but twice since the beginning of spring.
Good Luck,
