    I just yanked out my only 2 eggplants because of nematodes. They are driving me crazy!!! I am doing solar sterilization but I have my doubts because I read that these tiny weeny pests is like everywhere and they produced by the millions :mad:. Now I am worried for my tomatoes.

    Update :smt041:smt041! I dibbled both the Yukon and the LaSodas yesterday and came up with golf ball size potatoes of each type, and NO NEMATODE DAMAGE!

    Olé !

    That's good news. I was distressed when I read that those nematodes had wormed their way into your spud patch.
