What are these white spots on my tomato plant?

Asked October 3, 2017, 5:13 PM EDT

My tomato plant now has white spots on it and the leaves have been yellowing and shriveling up the past 2 weeks. Any idea what is causing the white spots? Is the yellowing of the leaves due to the season change or is that part of the white spots. I live in Baltimore City. Thank you for your time.

We can't tell exactly what you have going on here, especially this late in the season as plants begin to decline. It could be environmental- like wind damage, it could be disease or insect pests. Look carefully throughout the plant for pests, including under the leaves, and take and share a photo if you find any.
