Sadly, I will ot have a garden for the next two years, two years ago my soil got contaminated with the tobacco virus, it affects tomatoes and peppers both hot and sweet and egg plants. The first year I knew I had a problem because my plants just didn't look right and did not produce they way they should have and the fruit was misshapen.. Last year tomatoes peppers and hot peppers and egg plants were a total bust The extension agent told me to cover the garden with black plastic and let it sit for two years to try to get rid of the virus. I will buy some big pots and plant some peppers and tomatoes and hot peppers and grow them in pots. Fortunately the virus doesn't affect my perennial herbs so they are ok. I must have brought the virus home on some of the sets I bought, problem is, I bought from two places so I can;t even complain because I don't know who the culprit is.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
