The leaves on my tomato plants are curling. I had this happen to some plants I had in tubs, but never in my garden. Those that curled in the tubs never produced any fruit all season but they didn't die until the season was over. When I plant my tomatoes I always put fertilizer, (Tomatoes Alive) egg shells, and a pinch of epsom salts in the hole. I have done this for a few years and haven't had any problems until this year. I also rotate my crops every year. I hope someone can tell me whats going on and how to treat it.

Your tomatoes are molding. I think it is powdery mildew. Look for a fungicide that is specifically labeled for powdery mildew.

Either that, or maybe the bane of tomatoes, a wilt of some sort.
