Preparing garden after exposure to blight - Knowledgebase Question

I started my first organic garden last year. My tomatoes seemed to have gotten blight. I removed the mulch from the top of my raised beds and have read that I should plant my tomatoes in a different location. What else can I do this season to prepare my soil without using a fungicide, etc?

Rotating your crops and working in some fresh compost will help keep your veggies healthy this year. Organic matter does wonders for restoring soil so be sure to add new each year. You can use aged manure instead of compost. Be sure to plant the most disease resistant cultivars you can find! Best wishes with your garden.
