Tomatoes or Potatoes… it’s late blight.

Activist chef Dan Barber had an op-ed in Sunday’s NYTimes about the current late blight incursion into New England. It’s an important piece, one that highlights the dangers of “tight coupling” or the overly consolidated distribution chain. The blight was likely spread through seedlings sold in big-box stores, which means they travelled far and with minimal supervision. For those looking to diagnose and treat the blight, there’s some excellent additional info on the MOFGA website.
