TomatoesSince it is still too early here to put tomatoes out in the garden I'd imagine it also is in Minnesota, although the weather we've been having lately may make things a lot different. The yellowing leaves that you see could well be caused by the colder than normal temperatures, limiting nitrogen availability and the plants ability to photosynthesize other necessary nutrients.

You could make a temporary "greenhouse" from plastic sheeting around the plants that might help warm things up, but you would need to keep a close eye on that in case it suddenly gets warm so the "greenhouse" doesn't then cook the plants.
