Spots, yellowing and brown edges on leaves of tomato plant

Tomato    State College, PA

I bought a tomato plant and transplanted it about 7 days ago. Now it is showing lots of yellow spots/holes on the older leaves and the lowest leaves are turning brown. What are the likely causes? I have seen flea beetles on a few other types of veggie plants nearby. Also, the plants are in straight compost, so I wonder if they need some minerals.

Do you have a dew at night time on those plants? It can be bacterial (Pseudomonas) or fungal (Septoria) leaf spot. You see, that spots are concentrated on the top of closest leaf at Fig. 1 - just at the area of dew droplets.
