Re: QUESTION: Tomato Problem....

I have a few of thoughts: Could be you need to water more frequently, say 2x a day, (especially if this is in full sun and your temps are hot) or the roots could be bound (preventing water & nutrients from getting into the plant causing the leaves to curl) or it's tomato blight/contamination (the seeds could be from those which are prone to the blight right now or something in the soil has contaminated the plant - have you fertilized recently? If so, with what?) Some curling is normal depending on the variety though this does seem excessive. Try watering twice a day, if that doesn't help, perhaps dig it up, make sure its' roots are all bound together and transfer to a large container with fresh soil. If none of that works, perhaps your local agricultural extension or master gardeners could give you help with a diagnosis.
