Ugh, my first SFG had been doing so good, and now that the kids are on summer break I haven't been able to visit daily.
Well, 3 of toms have been attack by what I think is early blight. pale I would say at this point 60% of the tomato plants in the community garden are affected.
I cut the "bad leaves" and added a little bit of fertilizer to see if they get an oppmh, but I am pretty sure I've lost my crop. No
Any advice? What should I do to control the CG, I think I will have to send a mass email about it. I'm so, so, sad, guys. Especially because I read that once you have it, you cannot plant tomatoes in the same spot again for 4 years! Is out CG doomed?

If it is early blight you did the right thing by trimming affected leaves. I would go higher and trim all leaves below fruit as well ala Acada style. I had the same sort of thing happen and still got a great harvest from some ugly looking plants. Be sure and disinfect your snippers between trimming off discolored leaves and healthy ones as well as between plants. Early blight does live in the soil and I have read mulching with shreaded bark helps by keeping soil from splashing up and infecting plants. Even when carfeuly hand watering I still splash a little, but I'm a klutz. All is not lost I bet you still enjoy some fine tasting toms. Wink
