Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone could help me here. I had to pull 2 pumpkin plants already bcs they were basically dead, and my tomato plant is exhibiting similar symptoms as the pumpkin in the picture, just not as severely. Thanks all!!!

Your soil looks very dry, did you amend the soil before you planted? I'm sure other members will have more advice for you. Your location could help also.
Welcome!

Yes I added a lot of mulch to the first few inches earlier this year. I know it looks dry in the picture (was 92 that day) so idk if water is the issue, but I'll try and see. I live in NE Kansas, where there is a lot of clay in the soil.
