I have a serious problem with what I believe is Tomato Blight. I have an lot of blooms with small tomatos as wells some larger green tomatoes that are the size of a small baseball. The blooms are setting but the leaves are starting to turn yellow and are mottled and some at the top are a light green.
I hope this sounds familiar to some out here who can recommend a home remedy that will tend to correct this problem.
I patiently(maybe impatiently) await tour responses.

I grow tomatoes yearly and have had a problem every year with that. Try to clip off the impacted leaves, also check the soil with your finger and make sure you are not overwatering. The soil whould be slightly dry, several inches down befopre watering again. When you do water, water at the base of the plant and not all over the leaves...unless you a foiliar feed such as Garrett juice or something similar. I would also put a couple of handfuls or corn meal under each plant and work it into the soil.

Hi Sandih--I'm new to this site and hope to be able to retrieve your response. What does the corn meal do and also what is the recipe for Garrett juice? I can't seem to find it on the web site. I'm Brenda from south western Missouri--Springfield to be exact.I have been researching blight on this site.

Corn meal is a natural fungicide. Go to "learn" at the top of the page and click on 'article library', then go to the letter 'G' for garrett juice recipe and 'c' for corn meal info!
