Roma tomatoes leaves turning purple and curling

I have no idea what is wrong. I've looked all over the net and can't find anything to match. .

thank you for your time

If the leaves are curling up and showing the purple tint, it may well be leaf curl virus. Green Light may help with the spread by white flies. Erratic water supply and drastic temperature changes will cause curling but not the purple tint. Some tomatoes recover from this better than others.

no white flies

I did not see any white flies I did treat with shultzes for tomatoes. Should I remove discolored foliadge. I need a spell checker I live in North Eastern
Colorado and the weather has been going from one extream to another.

OK I found the white flies

found the white flies. My entire garden is being over run. I wore sun glasses
and could finally see them. What is green light? If you could not tell this is my first outdoor garden. Also I have this egg plant that's long and thin could you tell me how long they should get before I harvest? One more thing, how can you tell when watermelon is ready?

Green Light is miticide, fungicide, insecticide for tomatoes and others.
