Shocked Tomatoes?

Shocked Tomatoes?

nutmeg0287 | Jun 5, 2011 07:11 PM

So, I have a considerable amount of roof deck space attached to my apartment, and I started a rooftop garden this year. Everything is growing in containers and I made sure they are all appropriately sized. Everything seems to be growing fine, but I am having a problem with my tomatoes. The plant is growing and there are buds and some small fruit, but the bottom seems shocked. The leaves yellowed and now it's spreading down the stems. I feel like I've been watering it an appropriate amount (once a day), but maybe not. The weird thing is that it's just the bottom and I feel like if it was a watering issue the top would be the first to go? It's in full sun.. Any other ideas of what might be going on? This is my first year gardening and I was really looking forward to fresh tomatoes!!

Thanks in advance!
