Brandywine tomato leaves and petioles not healthy

by Val
(Cleveland, Utah)

I have a container-grown Brandywine plant but the lower leaves are leathery, drying/dying at tips and along edges near tips.

Petioles are brittle and easily accidentally detached from plant stem. Plant has grown about 6 inches in height since transplanted from pot to 5-gallon container 28 days ago.

Plant is approximately 20 inches tall.

The upper leaves are leathery, but supple and deep green, no yellowing/drying/dying of leaf tips or edges.

Anyone have suggestions to get the plants back to health?

My concern is not about the dark green leaves...... NEW

My original question was concerning the dying leaves and brittle petioles, not the dark green leaves which appear healthy.
Please read my original post.

Dark green leaves is usually due to an overdose of nitrogen... Could also be over watered or improper drainage from the bottom of the bucket
