Black spots?

Hello Everyone,

I was hoping you could identify if I have a serious problem or not. Recently, my Cherokee Purple Tomato plant has been developing these spots on its leaves and the lower leaves are dying off. Can you tell me if this is something I should be concerned about? I'm very new to growing tomatoes.

RE: Black spots?

Suggests environmental stress due to heat and very brief water shortage.
What have your temperatures been lately?
