My lower tomato leaves are yellow with green veins . They are also extremely curled . The plant is very tall and loaded with tomatoes . And the top leaves are nice a green . I have been fertilizing and a couple weeks ago I added epsom salt . Do you think this is a calcium deficiency or too much phosphorous or to high ph ?

What are your tomatoes planted in?

Mainly cotton bur compost

In a pot? Or mixed with regular soil in beds? (I have seen both in greenhouses...) At this point I think you have over-fertilized. The cotton burr compost was probably enough to keep the plants going through the season, more fertilizer was an overload, and Epsom salts simply skew the phosphorus without helping anything.

Stop fertilizing. It sounds as though your plants are otherwise healthy.
