Leaves turning yellow and dying

Hello, I am new to vegetable gardening. This is my second year at attempting to grow tomatoes. The leaves on the bottom of my plant are turning yellow and dying. Can anyone advise on this. Thank you!

Re: Leaves turning yellow and dying

it is typical for tomato plants to lose the bottom (oldest) leaves after awhile. Yours don't look too bad. I would remove them anyway. If it spreads to newer leaves or if you get more spotting, you may have some fungal disease like septoria leaf spot.


Tomatoes are very prone to this.
