Wow, that looks a bit like effects from herbicide. Is that possible? Do the ones affected in the ground and containers represent a pattern like they got caught in a swath or spray drift or leaching run-off?
Also, "watered at least once a day" and "fertilizer once a week or two" caught my eye.
Needing to water once a day is probable with mature fruiting container tomato, but more than once a day might hint at root bound plants in too small containers. Container tomatoes may also perform better if they are given noon day or afternoon shade. In the ground, usually if you need to water that often, or even once a day, it's quite likely you are not watering deeply enough each time, or your garden beds aren't mulched sufficiently.
Fertilizer should be applied in dilute concentration at that frequency, but it really depends on what kind of fertilizer. Once every two weeks seem like the most frequent I tend to think appropriate. Also, if using salt/chemical fertilizer, too much may cause build up in containers and burn the plants.
