Tomato Dust?

Hi, Everybody,
I have finally been getting a lot of ripe tomatoes. It is already autumn here, and I think that it was the weather that made things go slow.
Anyway, I noticed a sort of grey dust on the tomato vines. Mostly on the older, woody parts. But *not* on the fruits.
Perhaps a fungus? Or something else?
