Question: a couple lower leaves from yellowish brown spots on them. What causes this and what can I do to get rid of it

Answer: It is not unusual for the lower leaves on a tomato plant to turn yellow and drop off. The browning may be just part of the dying process or it could indicate a fungal disease. Remove the yellowing leaves (just in case) and watch your plant for other symptoms. If leaves continue to yellow or develop brown spots, a fungicide may be needed. Good luck with your plants!
