Re: Wilt

Yeah- I know. If I didn't live in zone 8-9 I wouldn't even consider it. But it is along a south wall, in a raised bed and there will be no leaves on the trees to block the sun....So- think it is worth a shot. I figured that the concrete next to it gets pretty hot on sunny days even in winter, so, we'll see.

Theresa, I'm glad solarization is doing the job for you.  I figured it would
work well in California.  Normally this method is only employed in summer,
for a couple of months, I don't know if it is advised for use over winter.

The one section of my garden has been solarizing for a couple months
now.  The weed that was growing there is long dead and appears to be
disintegrating.  So I'm taking that as a good sign.  After all the other
tomatos are done, I plan to solarize the entire garden until next
spring.  We'll see how it does.  It was a post by Kitty that gave me all
the details about the solarizing process and specs on plastic etc.

There was a discussion about this back in the spring when Theresa had
this problem. I am sure Kitty has all the info right on her keyboard :)

You could check the archives....

As the thread started there I believe, June 28th.

Theresa was going to try it, so I guess this would be a good time for an
update from her....

Not so sure I would plant my prize plants in that location.....without
doing something and testing first.


I need advise about planting other plants where I've grown tomatoes


some sort of wilt, possibly bacterial. I had been using a small


plot, moving the tomato plants around from year to year.  The last two
I've had crop failure. I plan to grow my tomatoes in a different


year, but I 'm not sure what I can grow in the old plot. I was

thinking of

putting some of my daylilies there.

Does anyone have experience with the above?
