I grow my tomatoes in the valley of the North Platte in western Nebraska. For the last three years(after relativity mild winters) something has affected my plants almost as soon as I plant them. I have assumed it is tomato blight. This what has worked each year: 2 heaping spoons of cayene pepper boiled and allowed to cool. 1 spoonful of dishsoap in a spray bottle. After the cayene infusion has cooled, pour into spray bottle, fill with water and spray plants. I usually do this 2 or 3 times. It seems if I spray it rains(just like washing my truck!), so I respray to replace what the rain washes away. I am also trying it this year on my eggplant which are attacked by Colorado Potatoe beetles. Good luck.
