Many of the leaves of my tomato plants have started turning yellowish/black/brown and seem like there is little/no water content in the leaves. It is happening on all different kinds (sungolds, brandywine, romas). I still have fruit on some of the plants so I'm wondering if it is a fungi or if they need something like nitrogen. We've been watering regularly...from the bottom, not on the leaves. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm by no means an expert, but that's happened on some of ours too, yet the fruit is still good -- I guess I just assumed that the plants were shunting all their resources to the fruit, and letting the leaves go. Could that be?
That sounds as logical as anything I've heard :) Its my first year growing a lot of stuff, so I'm wondering if I'm doing even half of it right. Now, I just have to keep the squirrels away from the second tomato crop...I'm hoping the red pepper flakes will do the trick!

I think that is late blight, not to be confused with early blight which we had. If you go to johnnyseeds.com, they have great info on this.
I asked the same thing a while back about my blossom end rot. I pulled off the green fruits and they're ripening now, but the plants went the way of the chopper.
