droopy tomato leaves

I have 3 tomato plants outside in about 5 gallon pots. They are thriving and are about 3 feet high with many flowers. The beefsteak tomato leaves are very droopy. The stems are strong but I can’t help but feel something is wrong. I want to fix it before it is too late. Any ideas?

My gut is that they are not getting enough water. In containers, plants need more water than most people realize. Try increasing water to the plant and see if that helps.

There are many reasons this can happen. This article may be helpful in explaining more about those reasons:
