    Something is wrong with my tomatoes!
    This is about 3 days after going outside

    The edges are curling in and are turning yellow.

    EDIT: They are now drooping, turning white, and the x-axis stems are falling.

    The pics are so small I can't tell for certain, but it looks like sunburn. Take a look at this site to see if anything matches what you are seeing.

    It still looks like sunburn to me. Did you look at that site I gave you?

    If it is sunburn you should have given it shadier conditions until the leaves got used to the sun. Remove the severely damaged leaves. Remember, you can plant tomatoes deeper in the garden then they were growing in the pot. One of the few plants you can do this with.

    I found the same thing on mine

    I thought I had them safe enough but got hit with alittle sunburn then I totally shaded them for a day or two and they are ok... when I planted them I also sunk them just past the first true leaves. Now the only problem I have had is bunnies,lol. since I moved them on the third try,lol. the bunnies don't touch them now... I kind of think they can't find them yet,lol.

    Winddancer, glad to know they bounced back. Have you considered wire cages for the tomatoes while they are small?
