More Problems with Tomato Blight Virus
Excess rain can contribute to Tomato Blight
It seems that everyone has their own answers about tomatoe blight. I've heard so many, and I really don't have the answers. Two years ago was the first experience I had with blight. I asked around then, and was led to believe that skipping a year or two would solve the problem. I tried again this year, planting the tomatoes 100 feet away, in new soil. The plants were thriving, and it hadnt rained for three weeks, But blight struck anyway.Three days and the plants and fruit were gone.....Next year, and from now on, I'll let someone else grow 'em. If you found a spray that works, please let me know what it is, I'll pass it on. I would imagine that you will have to use it for several years though. As far as planting them under the eaves of your house goes,I think it would help fight a new infection, but apparently the virus stays in the soil for some time, so you may still have the problem,,,wet or dry.
