Couple of hours away....your funny. Picked up some local micro brew when I quit working at 2:30 (or as I refer to it today as BEER:30)

bacillus subtillis is used regularly in organic farming, so is Kelp and fish, compost teas can help, people have good luck with ours, also the NPP is great for decimating the fungal populations on the leaf, turn the leaves upside down and spray the bottoms, come back with CT spray next morning

pruning for better air circulation is a must, morning sunlight (of which I get none)

pick and prune effected leaves an get them out of the area, I use the trash can instead of the compost pile

Sometimes it is inside the plant (systemic) and there is not a lot you can do about it

ok good info but the plants were pulled last week and thrown in a dump truck
the tomatoes were right next to the potato's so both seem to have it.
however i was not called till they started ripping it all out and dragging it to the truck.
i am afraid it is in the soil??????????
