Put in one tomato plant about a mounth ago, looks like the blight is in the soil this year again. I put down fungicide about two weeks ago but the plant is weathering bad.
What are you guys seeing.

Have you checked with your county extension office? They should know best what's going on in your area. I called last year after we got infected with the "top down" or "curly leaf" disease. It turned out that a lot of the seedlings were infected with that along the east coast. The leaves curly up and the plant dies from the top down. Fruit will form but it never matures. It also will infect peppers. Once the virus is in the plant - usually as seedlings - there is no prevention or cure but it supposedly doesn't stay in the soil. This year I switched my garden location and brought the seedlings from a different source. So far so good. Good luck, Lisa

Blight got most of all my tomato plants last year. I actually thought they were doing good then it slowly but surely ruined everything. No tomatoes this year, going all leafy vegetables i think. 29 degrees saturday night and forecast 31 degrees for sunday night and monday night, i can't plant yet.

The blight that my tomatos had last year started like that then real quick like they would get black spots & start to rot, I was told its hard to get rid of & not to just turn them over but too little too late. If I do put some in it will be in a different location, I might also just stick with other plants.

Anything that works is fine with me, I`m not totally sure of planting much of anything this year, got to get around to tending my rhubarb & business is starting to get busy as all get out. Better than having little to no business. Seems that Dawn has a lot of uses, if your dog ever gets skunked its the best thing I ever found for getting the smell out. (slow learner of a dog)

Thanks, Will

Dawn is probably the best safe greese & oil cutter ever made, thats what they use on the clean up of the birds & animals that get soaked in the oil spills.
