Lately here in Georgia many folks have been having a terrible time with tomato blight. They've had their whole tomato crop wiped out. They probably introduced the disease into their garden by accident when they bought some infected plants from a nursery or garden center. I've always heard that once you get it, it will live in your soil for years and years and it's best to plant your crop in another location. I wonder if soil solarization would help. It might take several consecutive solarization treatments...tilling the soil in between each time to get down deeper into the soil. What do you think, Marsh?
