Late Tomato Blight has come early!

There was a good article in the paper on Sunday regarding late tomato blight. Apparently the intense amount of rain we have had is causing the blight early in the season. Check your plants for blight and if they have it, throw away the plants and do not compost them. Also, disinfect your garden tools and wash your gardening clothes in hot water to kill the spores.

Here is a link to the article, “Season’s been just rotten” by Anika Clark of the Keene Sentinal.
