Late Blight on Tomatoes

late blight update. no confirmed cases of late blight have been found in rhode island, but it has been found in massachusetts and connecticut, as you can see from this map. if you’re not sure if what you have is late blight, see this fact sheet from the university of connecticut for detailed information and photos of the disease. and i found this post from kathy at skippy’s vegetable garden very informative. she’s actually found late blight in her community garden, but has been taking measures to prevent the infection, successfully so far.
