Late Blight already!

The dreaded disease was noted in a commercial tomato operation in western Lancaster Co. People within 150 miles should be on the lookout and probably step up preventative spray program. The spore can traval 50 miles from an infected area in the wind. The bad thing about this disease is that if it hits you have little time to react. Usually all the fruit will be rotting and plants dying two weeks after you notice the problem.

Makes me glad I didn't get around to planting tomatoes this year!
