My tomatoes died off in early august this year might be nitrogen or a fungul disease and i can't determine what it is. Should i just replace the soil in my raised bed and clean my tools?

It could be a few things. The obvious one is if you've  planted tomatoes in the same bed for a number of years.

If they've been planted in the same bed, then you may have nematodes. The normal non-toxic treatment, is to plant marigolds and mustard plants in it, let them mature until they're sappy, then dig them in - natural fumigant.

Otherwise, it may be inconsistent watering, wetting the foliage, fertilising at the wrong times, etc.

Need more info before it can be narrowed down.
CAUTION! Do not touch the blades on your neck propeller while they are active. Tiny ad:
Heat your home with the twigs that naturally fall of the trees in your yard
