Re: tomato woes

Theresa, select tomato varieties that have good protection.  I trim off all 
the foliage that is near the ground, lay newspaper on top of the soil and top 
with grass clippings.  Virus may be transmitted by splashup from the soil when 
watered.  The paper/clippings block this from happening and holds the 
moisture.  Trimming just reduces the risk as the foliage is not so near the soil.  
Also, provide good air circulation.  You may know all this.
