A fast and easy way to help your tomato plants fight off diseases and strengthen the foliage for nearly free. A cheap aspirin will help to mimic a tomato hormone that will boost your tomatoes defenses against disease.

A study conducted by the US Department of Agriculture found that spraying aspirin can help to reduce blight by as much as 47%. This is extremely important after a wet summer rain because the wind carries spores that may sprout almost immediately and destroy all your vegetables.

You should be adding about 325mg of crushed up aspirin to 1 gallon of water and then spraying it on your tomato plants 2 – 3 times every month.
