Early Blight Attacks!

I don't know about you all, but I'm seeing a lot of early blight around the garden this year. It's turning all my leaves yellow and making them die off! I plan to deal with the problem using a home remedy floating around on many of the organic gardening websites. The recipe is as follows:

1 T Baking soda
2.5 T lightweight horticultural oil
Mix with 1 gallon of water and spray foliage every 2 weeks.

You should also be careful to water your plants from the bottom to avoid getting moisture on the leaves.

I will let you know how this works in my garden. Let us know what remedies you have for this pesky and common disease.
