Late Blight Alert for Tomatoes and Potatoes

Please be on the look out in your home gardens!

If you see signs of late blight on your tomatoes, harvest all tomatoes (both ripened and unripened) and dispose of the plants immediately. Potatoes are also at risk. For more information and pictures of what to look for, see the UMass Extension's late blight alert.

Our Lincoln CSA farmer Kate wrote about what this has meant for our farm earlier this week. For other perspectives, Boston food writer Alison Arnett has a reaction to TFP's blight announcement, and local farmer MK Wyle has a powerful story about the blight's impact on her farm.

note: The Boston Globe published an article on the topic on July 31 with pictures of Lindentree Farm (The Food Project's neighbor in Lincoln).
