Last week my tomato vines started dying off, and now a lot of my formally good tomatoes are all getting marks--it looks like Late Blight.( I saw a picture at http://www.longislandhort.cornell.edu/vegpath/photos/lateblight_tomato.htm) and that's exactly what it looks like. What do I do? Can my tomatoes be saved or do I have to dig everything up? I've just noticed my cucumber vines starting to yellow and get spots. In addition, my spaghetti squash leaves and vines are beginning to yellow--not sure if any of this is related. I took pictures of everything, but I can only upload one image.
