In Topic: What kind of tomato blight is this?

17 July 2017 - 01:36 PM

Early blight  https://www.planetna...e/early-blight/


Next year you'll need to give the plants more space/air between them, but that won't necessarily stop the blight. Start a preventative spray when you transplant. It does help, but may only slow the disease.


When blight affects my garden, I immediately remove all leaves/branches on the plant. Unfortunately, the plant will probably be removed and put into the garbage, no composting of any tomatoes or peppers in my garden.

Beautiful plants, Chuck! You've done such a great job protecting and nurturing them and I know they appreciate every ache you have. Shade cloth is almost a necessity here in CO, especially with your high temps lately. I wish I had room for a green house for growing peppers, but they'll have to be content n pots on the patio.

Best of harvests for your gorgeous plants. Enjoy the summer with your son, and keep safe.

So have the flea beetles left for good yet? Hopefully they'll be gone before July 1 so my plants can get growing. As for the potato plants and beetles, keep checking the plants as I don't trust the tiny buggers.

I get these flea beetles every year and usually just wait them out and remove bottom leaves. This year I sprayed but still have to remove more and more of the bottom leaves. Good luck with your garden pests.

Thanks for the reminder. I got really scammed by a person close by. Too kind. So now I just ignore the requests if the name is not familiar.


And, put this list on 'sticky'.


Send them to legitimate web sites to order their own seeds, especially THP members.

Those holes don't look like the tiny holes in my tomato plants that were made by flea beetles. I used Safer End All insecticide and haven't seem them for a while. The flea beetles decimated most of the bottom leaves, but the plants will soon have another pest, I'm sure.
