Default What to do with old tomato vines?

Plow them under or toss in the trash bin?

Old tomato vines can harbor disease that can over-winter. I suggest burning them or at least get them away from the garden.

i always bury them, any organic matter for my soil
is better than none.

yes, we have diseases and bugs, but i rotate plant
every year so by the time i get back to the garden
where i've buried them it's usually ok.

it doesn't matter what i do for late blight. it
shows up every year. which is ok. by the time the
season is done we have enough tomatoes put up
anyways.

We throw them on the compost pile.

Thank you all!

I usually do not rotate due to all the preparation involved.
So I will be tossing them in the trash bin. (I have no
compose bin. I bury in place.)

And I remember digging up stuff that have been buried in place
for three years, so I do not do that so much anymore. I
just fertilize my ass off. That has worked the best. I
use an organic chicken scat based dry fertilizer I get from
Wally World.

Weird, avacado pits are still popping out of the ground.
from three years ago. Took me forever to figure out what
they were.
