Tomato plant conundrum

Asked June 12, 2018, 9:40 PM EDT

Can you give me some idea of why 2 of my 4 tomatoes plants look this way? (Photos attached). They’re all planted together in the same area.

You (or somebody) sprayed a herbicide close to them. Tomatoes are extremely sensitive to many herbicides, especially 2-4D which is a common broadleaf weed killer for lawns and I see they are right next to you grass. The may grow out of it depending on how much of a dose they received.
