Hi folks! In new to gardening and I have a question-
I transplanted my tomatoes outside about 2 weeks ago (they got too big to keep in the house) and am doing my best to get them used to being outside- they get zipped up in a greenhouse cover at night so they don't get too cold
I have noticed this brown discoloration on some of the leaves and am now worried that I over fertilized them or there's something wrong with the soil. Any help or advice would be appreciated

Welcome!

Did you use potting soil in your containers? Did you read the bag to check for what nutrients the soil already had? Tomatoes in containers, potted with soil with added nutrients doesn't need any fertilizer.

It was soil from an older larger container that I didn't set up... So I have no idea what was in it. If there had been a bag I obviously would have read that... l
