This tomato leaf is showing some yellow. Which could be low nitrogen. But I think its low nitrogen caused by cool temps or low energy because too much energy is going into the roots? Not sure how I could fix it from a nutritional standpoint, there might be a lot of nitrogen in the soil... its hard to tell anything during cold weather. The microbes in the soil want to hit the snooze button and wake up a month from now, and who can blame them. It could be low magnesium too. I might go that route first.

It might seem silly to worry about it because its a older leaf, but I think the older leaves do have an important story to tell. The young leaves are blissfully removed from any hardship, but the older leaves know whats really going on.
