    Tomatoes are really heavy feeders, a window box might not have enough nutrients. If the leaves arent deep green try a folier fertilizer like spray-n-grow. also see if you have anything chomping away at the stems. Or check and see if the roots got too hot and cooked along the inside edge of the box. Window box gardening is very water and fertilizer intensive since you have to compensate for less soil and more temperature extremes.
