Top Half of Plant

I am a novice gardener trying my hand for the first time growing tomatoes and have a problem with my Beefmaster plant.


Please take a look at the two photos I've uploaded with this message. You will see the leaves on the top half of the plant look drastically different from the bottom leaves in that they are smaller and slightly curled. I don't know if this is a result of over-watering, a virus, or being exposed to some weather (wind, cooler temperatures, etc.) or perhaps a combination of these factors. Please let me know if you recognize the problem and any remedies you would suggest. Thank you very much for your help!

Potted Tomatoes

Sometimes in potted tomatoes the pot and dirt get too hot. Might need some insulation between them. Also, they need around 22 inches square and deep of dirt. The smaller, the more tender loving care needed to keep them just right. You are taking nature's place to some extent.
