ok, thought I would never get it as my garden is doing VERY well...except along the side yard, 3 plants all infected egad They looked fine a few days ago, today while I was watering I noticed that they had indeed started turning red, but only HALF of them. The other half of each tomato is caved in and starting to rot boohoo
I am NOT happy about tossing them, but I know I must. Never had it before but I am only a second season gardener here. HOW DO I DISPOSE OF THE PLANTS SO THEY WONT INFECT THE REST OF MY GARDEN?? Mind you that these plant are completely apart and separate from the bulk of my garden. why

Is it all tomatoes? The pictuers you show just only 1 tomato per branch that is bad. . . or is it an abundance of tomatoes?

If you have to dispose of them, either pull them & burn in a leaf pile or w/e or I would even pull them & put them in the garbage (trash removal service) if you have. (pitchin them in the woods would work too !!)

:( I am so sorry to see that.


If you haven't got all the things you want, be grateful for the things you don't have that you don't want.

all the tomatoes on each plant is affected in some way, I think pulling is best, just needed to know what to do with them once out of the ground. I live in the city so burning is not an option for me :(
Bummer, they were my best plants too!!!

Awwwwww Chrissy, sure am sorry to see that, but thanks for showing it to the rest of us. I've never seen blight on tomatoes so now I know what to look for. Hope it doesn't get all your other tomatoes.

just out of curiosity, what were your feeding habbits? How often did you fertilize? How often did you water them? Were they getting full sun and did you mulch the base of them? I really cant think of any other parts to gardening besides the soil itself. . . Were they potted or in ground? Do you till/turn each year? Do you add compost at all?

Sorry for the drill of questions, you just sparked my curiosity
