The shapes of tomato leaves vary depending upon variety. Some leaves are smooth and look like the leaves on potato plants and others are wrinkled and more 'tomatoey' looking. The weather can also have an affect on how leaves look. Unless the leaves are distorted, thick, or curl upward, I wouldn't be too concerned about their appearance. Unless the plants look unhealthy, get blotches, or the leaves begin to yellow, your plants are probably just fine. If they are actually drying up, a fungal disease might be to blame.

Weather has lots to do with eggplants setting fruit. When temperatures soar, the flowers will simply fall off the plants. There's not much you can do but be patient with your plants.
