Well my season is going well..i've had my tomatos going about 4-5 weeks now...but im starting to get discoloration on some leaves...can anyone shed some light on this?

These plants were all sown under a grow light and when they were about 4" i began placing them in the greenhouse during daylight..i remember michael brenock saying i might have some hardening off issues..

this is almost certainly sun scorch caused by run off droplets of water overnight or watering the leaves. nothing serious except that when cold damp weather follows there may be an outbreak of botrytis or grey mould. The plants should rapidly outgrow this little setback.
