My young tomato plants leaves have been turning lighter and lighter at the edges until they die. some of them have also gotten little tan spots on them.

I think I used ether Miracle-Gro Seed Starting Potting mix because I started them from seeds or the Moisture Control Potting Mix after transplanting them.

Have you fertilized?

Yes, I used a little fertilizer about a month ago and about a week ago. I think it was an all purpose plant food.

They look like they could be over watered. You used moisture control potting soil - it holds too much water for most plants.

It also looks like it could be over fertilized. The potting soil came with a 6 month supply of fertilizer built in. You have fertilized twice in the last month, adding fertilizer to an already fertilzed plant.
