Answer: Hi Geoff,
The tomatoes may have a virus called tomato spotted wilt virus which is spread by thrips. It is common in Spring when the thrip populations increase.
It is important to control any weeds around the tomatoes to help prevent the spread of the disease as many weeds are susceptible to this disease.
