Tomato Attack!

alwayscooking | May 16, 2009 04:27 PM

It's only mid-May and the tomatoes are under attack.

They have small pin-prick sized, round white lesions on the leaves with black 'dust' on the bottom side. Nothing seems to be crawling so I'm guessing it's seportia or some other bacteria.

My plan of attack is fungicide. I found this recipe on the web and wonder if anyone has tried it or has a better remedy:

"Mixture of one part milk to four parts water, along with 1 teaspoon of baking soda for every quart of water used. A few drops of liquid soap will help to make the spray stick. The reason this spray is effective is that dried milk when exposed to the sun's ray's temporarily changes into a disinfectant, while the bicarbonate component of baking soda kills new fungal colonies."

Help me save the tomatoes!
