|I have found over the years that although tomatoes are considered warm weather vegetables, they are NOT hot or heat loving vegetables!
You have to safeguard and protect them from too much in the way of late afternoon sun. It is the hottest part of the day. It would be so much better if you can shade them a bit in the late afternoon.
You also at the same time have to make sure that you keep the watering up. They should not dry out. You are better off watering more then once a day if needed.
The unevenness or bumpiness of the stems is normal. Heat stressed tomatoes suffer from wrinkled leaves, wilted growing tips, and flower drop.
