Tomato Update- So Far So Good!
It has been over 2 weeks since we saw the first signs of the dreaded southern blight. We lost 4 plants. The rest of them are doing well, so far, after we applied the worm casting poultices. The plants are no longer wilting. They are putting out new growth. We harvested a few fruits from 2 plants which were the worst looking ones 2 weeks ago.
At the end of the growing season we will dig some of the up to examine the root system to see if we did indeed create a condition in which a replacement root system could develop.
