Robert, my tomatoes did the same way. I live in the NC foothills, and we had an excessive amount of rain. I have a very small garden, but only got 4 decent tomatoes off 3 tomato plants. The only thing that did any good at all, was green beans. Last year, when we were in a drought, I had so many tomatoes that I gave away more than we used.

I would surmise that you have had an inordinant amount of rain this season. I'm just guessing but that's what mine look like when we get too much rain in New Orleans.
According to our LSU Agricultural Guru, when the roots are flooded they are deprived of oxygen and die...just like anyting or anyone else would drown. And since the roots are now dead, or severely damaged, they cannot supply the plant with moisture and nutrients...and it goes into shock. The plant is actually starving and looks like it's dying from lack of water.
