Fusarium wilt - I could just cry!

Post  newgloves on 8/27/2010, 9:54 pm

Well, my tomato plants have been sickly all along but I figured it was just cuz they were the last leftover plants at the nursery & I didn't plant until July. I'm continually clipping off drying dead branches while the rest of the plant thrives. But, with the heat spell we just had they suddenly were doing much worse so I spent some time on the internet & I think they have the wilt! All 10 of them! From hybrids w/ every resistance possible to the heirlooms. Actually, one of the worst affected is a Celebrity. I am just sick over it!

This is my first year SFG. I had to talk husband into doing the beds & his family thought it was dumb. They all just played along w/ the pregnant woman. Now all my tomato plants are diseased and have, apparently, affected the soil. Everything online says not to plant tomato plants in the beds for 2-4 years? I dont' have enough beds to do that! There's nothing quite like a garden to make you feel like a failure. My beets don't have beet bottoms, the snails ate my spinach, I've been picking worm after worm off my diseased tomatoes. Why doesn't a tornado just touch down on my beds and put me out of my misery! AARGH!

Well, any advise/suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I'm obviously too sick to have a coherent thought right now.

Take heart newgloves ! Many many of us have had bad luck / tomato failures this year. Its just been a wacky summer all around. Several of my tomato plants set no fruit at all. My best producer was a volunteer from the compost pile that in no way resembled any tomato I have ever had. I have two HUGE eggplants that are all foliage and have not set one fruit. Hang in there and plant some greens for fall !!

I am so sorry - especially because I understand the frustration of being surrounded by naysayers.

Look up solarization - if you solarize the beds, you can re-use them for tomatoes. (Truth in advertizing disclaimer - Not speaking from experience!)

This is just a starter of where to look - http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/solarization.htm

You can also look for wilt-resistant tomatoes to plant next year. I lost one plant to wilt about a month ago and was certain all the others in that bed were doomed, but no! All are different varieties from the one that died, and all are doing just fine. They're about played out for the summer, but none has wilted.
