What's wrong with my plants?

posted by: kaine23 on 06.27.2013 at 02:50 pm in Tomato Pests & Diseases Forum

I live in zone 6 (NJ). Some of my tomato plants look like the one in the included photo. Any idea what's going on with them? Only other thing i can think of is the fact that we had a cool and rainy June, or some got blight infected already? I have been spraying and I did the trick of using bleach and baby shampoo in water sprayed onto the soil weeks before planting. I'm a bit stumped. Not all my plants look like this (possibly yet), anything i can do?

late blight?

posted by: kaine23 on 08.29.2012 at 08:28 pm in Tomato Pests & Diseases Forum

This sucks, after thinking I was doing everything right with trying to solarize my garden over with the extra warm winter, and spraying my plants with bonide fruit & veggie spray, looks like the late blight is here on my tomato plants again (though I have lovely tomatoes!). After uncovering my garden I also put a thick new layer of dirt on top of the old and was trying to be careful not to disturb the old dirt.

So what can I do to try to knock this out when I tear my plants out this fall or early in the spring? I hear broken egg shells sprinkled in the garden help, and read someplace a spraying on the dirt of 2 Tbs bleach + 2 Tbs baby shampoo in a gallon of water works on the soil. Any other advice?
