I am 99.9% sure my tomatoes have septoria leaf spot. I went to home depot today and the product they recommended is scary to say the least. I have been researching organic treatments for this disease like crazy and can't seem to find the product I need (copper hydroxide) in a small home garden quantity. Does anyone know of a way for me to fix this without dumping horrendously toxic chemicals into my soil?

Please help me! All 14 of my tomato plants are infected and dying!

Thanks!

Have you tried any Jerry Baker books? He usually has a homemade mix for every problem. See if you can get some free 5 gallon buckets from local restaurants so you can get some potted plants going.
