What's this on my tomatoes?

Hi All,
I'm a complete tomato growing novice and I need some advice please. A couple of my Amish Paste tomato plants have these yellow marks on their lower leaves and I don't know what's causing it. They look perfectly healthy otherwise. They're growing in the greenhouse. I'm hoping and praying that it isn't something serious.

    I wouldn't be worried. All tomatoes get leaf problems as they grow - depending on the health of the soil and other factors. Sometimes leaves get spotted and marked if they're splashed when you're watering too.
    If the plants are fine otherwise, just keep going  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Thanks so much! I was worried I would lose my plants. Being a newbie grower is nerve wracking

    It certainly is!
    If you think there's a problem in future, it helps to get a pic of the whole plant too, but if it's otherwise fine, I wouldn't be too worried at this stage.  :)
    Sometimes problems arise due to overfeeding, so as long as you're not doing that it should be fine. They don't need any food until the first truss of fruit is set.

    No I haven't fed them as they haven't set yet. I'll remember to take pics of the whole plant next time, thanks for the tip 👍
