Have read lots here and elsewhere on the topic. A few years ago I had my first real outbreak (2009 was an awful year around here). Since then I have just played "beat the clock". Works pretty well. To date I have harvested about 100lbs. However usually by early to mid August I lose the battle. Want to get back to having tomatoes into October. I know the best thing to do is rotate but that isn't easily done. I have a large raised bed garden and have thought about doing a second with new soil but I feel I'll just end up in the same place with both.
So I'm debating continuing next year, mulching, increasing the distance between plants, spraying (maybe) and closely monitoring the bottom leaves for removal at any early signs. I can't say that I have been diligent with any this year.
So my question is am I just setting myself up for increased work and the same (or slightly better results) or is it possible to grow in soil where blight is known to exist and through these steps overcome, or mostly overcome it?
Second thought has been to grow most or all resistant varieties (what few there are and I do realize resistance does not equal immunity).
I welcome any and all thoughts and I'm especially interested in folks who have been in the same predicament and how they handled it and how successful they were.
