The leaves look like they're drying up and need water and the blossoms are drooping and then falling off. If I didn't see the drooping I would've thought I had cut worms because the ends are so clean, where the flowers fell off.

Do they recover somewhat in the evening?

Give us some more details please. What has the weather been like? I know Las Vegas can be very hot but it can also freeze. So what was the weather like just before this started? How has it changed?

Is it only affecting tomatoes? How are they being watered? Are they planted in Mel's mix? How big are they and how long have they been planted in the garden? Are they in full sun?

This is what the leaves look like on the bottom.

I know I overwatered in the beginning and have lessened the amount of water, but hoping to recover.

It's been hot - like high 90's. I had the greenhouse closed so there was more humidity than normal, as well. No freezing this time of year. All of my plants are also in containers. The weather just started getting hotter a few days ago. It was in the high 70's until the last few days.

It's only some of the tomatoes. The peppers are looking good, the herbs are as well. My squash look wrinkly.

They're on an automatic drip system. I work out of the house so I check on them a few times a day. I have been taking the drippers out when the soil is too most and letting those containers dry up a bit. I just started getting confused now though because some of the leaves are completely drying out so I've watered those tomatoes and it's not the whole plant, just some of the leaves and flowers.

They are planted in organic soil from our local nursery, Moon. And they're with almost half mulch with wood pieces in it. Moon gardener recommended that mix. I used Moon Dust when I planted them and I started putting coffee down at the stems because worms were eating my tomato leaves, plus my mint and sage. The master gardener told me that I was over watering last weekend. I suspected that. I showed him photos and he suggested I get an organic tomato fertilizer. So I used that last week. With that said, I have quite a few other tomato plants that look just fine.

The tomatoes have been in the greenhouse since April 11th and they're around 3 feet tall. The sun comes through the front door in the morning, goes right over the greenhouse and then gets the last bit of sun at the end of the day. They are in the southeast side of our house.

Knowing the variety would also help. Have there been any herbicides recently sprayed in the vicinity of your garden?
Here is an interesting read about physiological leaf roll. But I don't know if that is the problem here or not.

Its probably your current local temps/humidity levels that are causing it.

Nevada is a bear for tomato growing because of temp and humidity.

Your local University of Nevada extension office recommends several possible solutions.....including spraying your blossoms with a jet of water twice during the heat of the day.

Check out the link above and see if it helps you.
