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.

My local colleges (or their Agriculture departments) will accept photos and try to help identify issues - maybe yours will too?
Around here we’ve had a pretty bad white oak infestation with something or other killing off leaves and early on, a state college identified the culprit. Unfortunately the outcome was something like “wait it out and hope your trees don’t die”.
Could also simply having been too hot and the plants are struggling to take up enough water. Or too much fertiliser (salt) in the soil or substrate, again making it difficult for the plant to take up enough water
Ah, my climate is not at all mediterranean.
Well, maybe the med will get a climate similar to ours in time.
