Blight

Anonymous added on August 26, 2011 | Answered

I not only have blight that has killed my tomatoes, but it appears my cucumbers and squash have it also. I was told I should not garden in this area next year. I do not like to spray, so what do you suggest? Do I not garden next year in this area and plant summer rye, clover, etc. ? I am open for suggestions for the nature cure.
