Tomato Leave Issues

Thanks for visiting. Below are photos of my tomato plant leaves. They have developed this purple color and I'm not sure why.

The facts:
1. They are "Better Bush" variety.
2. I'm using an EarthBox to grow them.
3. They are on our deck, three flights up.
4. The tomatoes have been great.
5. This is our first venture into growing vegetables.

I'm not sure what the problem is. The leaves begin to get this purple color. Usually it starts on the outside of the leaf and works it's way in. If anyone can help, please leave a comment. It will be greatly appreciated.

Hi! Thanks for leaving a comment at my blog.

Your leaves look a lot like the leaves at this site: http://plantdiagnostics.umd.edu/level3.cfm They say its due to cold temperatures and Magnesium deficiency. You're doing great if you've grown tomatoes all season on a deck. It's probably just since its the end of the season. Mine are turning yellow now where yours are purple.
