New to everything gardening and square foot gardening too. Planted tomatoes, nasturtium, marigold, lettuce in raised planter box. I'm using planting mix of 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 vermiculite, 1/3 blended compost. This beefsteak tomato is shrivel in v thriving but neighboring plants (including a hybrid tomato) are doing well). No obvious sign or trauma or critters. Planted on May 24. Please help ID what I may be doing wrong or what I can do to resolve. Thanks!

This looks like water stress, either too much or too little.
That said, other things can cause leaf curl, including that it is a varietal characteristic for some types.
Please take a look at the following IPM: Tomatoes publication which is very useful: http://www.extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG56%20IPM%20Tom...
