Hi, thanks for the question and the images. Indigo Rose is prone to leaf curl as happens with some hybrid tomatoes. Your images, though, look like possible herbicide damage.

The curl could also be caused by excess heat, wind damage, mites or a virus.
I am including some information about tomato leaf curl and herbicide damage.

If it is convenient for you it might be a good idea to take pictures and a physical sample to Lane County Extension Office. Their address and contact information is here. https://extension.oregonstate.edu/lane
