Newest tomatoes leaves wilt then dry. What's up with that?

Does anyone know what this might be?

I have had a few problems with spider mites and dusted the bottom of some plants with bionide spinosad. I have hand picked a few hornworms, and found a few holes in stems suggesting boring, but no evidence on these plants..

Just a few of the newest leaves on a few plants wilt, then dry.

Doesn't seem to be major, but I've never seen it before. I am in a very hot a dry climate, growing in Earthboxes ( sub irrigation planters), and growing Dwarf Project Tomatoes.

I think I see an insect in this photo.

I think these are aphids I marked up with red.

I see these light brown rings on some of the effected stems.

Otherwise the plants look good.

Any thoughts?
