Why did my Earthbox plants turn yellow and spotted?

6 years ago

So I went away for my eclipse trip for 7 days, and when I came back, all my beautiful green plants have started turning yellow. Some of them have distinct yellow spots on the leaves.

They've been ripening steadily, and I had someone come in and pick them daily while we were gone. Before we left, we purchased and hooked up the EB watering system. It was in place for at least a week b4 we left so I'm sure it was working. The soil mix is still moist.

Is this just the natural death of my determinates? Or is there a disease or deficiency going on? I fertilized them today just in case. Should I also spray? Or is it too late to bother?

It is making me sad. They were beautiful before we left.
