Default Tomatos plant ill?

Hello all,

I've got two plants in an Earthtainer that, to my untrained eye, are slowly succumbing to something. The rest of the garden is okay. Please take a look at the photos and let me know.

For some background... This has been an unusually rainy and cool spring and summer.

I get the crispy leaf tips too. But the plants seem fine so I haven't done anything about it, except to pick them off when they start to show chlorosis as in your first pic.

The plant in the last pic looks wilty.

Tip burn on the leaves could be caused by a number of things. environmental stress like high winds and cool temperatures. How unseasonably cool is it in Ottawa?
Over fertilization could be another cause.
The plant look OK otherwise.

Thanks. I think we are not too far from record rains for May and June and perhaps a few degrees cooler than normal. It's still raining a lot, but warmer, but still cooler than normal.

Not overfertilized, I think, because I only put down a strip. I didn't mix fertilizer with the soil medium.

A lot of dropped flowers, by the way.

Gray mold seems to like cool moist weather. Hope you get some breezy dry sunshine.
