Hot weather and wind battering the old leaves, new ones are healthy so no need to worry now. Several of mine look the same.

Tricky one this: the old leaves look as if they are suffering from a nutrient deficiency, but as Mum says, the new ones look good.

When in doubt, give a liquid feed - it won't hurt and even if they don't really need feeding the water will be appreciated given the current weather!
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

Tomato feed isn't suitable for rocket as it encourages flowering and you don't want rocket to do that, it spoils the taste if it flowers :(

Could it be that the plants were a bit pot bound before planting out, hence old leaves being a bit nutrient deficient as JayG says & now they are planted out the new leaves are growing along fine?

This is perfectly normal for courgette plants that bear yellow fruit, so I presume it is also for marrows. The last few years I've grown yellow courgettes along side green ones (exact same conditions/treatment) and the yellow ones always get yellow leaves, just like yours.

Here are a couple of pics of this years courgettes for comparison. One green, and one yellow variety, both in the same bed/treated the same.
