Robb Grows His Own
My tomato plants all turned brown and the leaves dropped off. The horticulturalist at Teas Nursery on Bellaire said to pull up the plants and rake out all the roots, then cover the soil with black plastic for four weeks.
The heat of the sun will kill all the diseases and then you can plant again first of August, he said. The process is called solarizing.
I had some basil planted in there too. So I ended up with 8 cups of basil leaves on my hands. Pesto time!
Process in batches until presto, it's pesto. -- Robb Walsh
