[tomato] Leaf Spot

For the past two years, I have had serious problems with Septoria Leaf Spot. 
  Last year most of my tomatoes had died by mid september.  This year they 
lasted a bit longer and a few resistant varieties almost made it to the 
first killing frost.

Part of the problem is that I planted too close together and some trees 
block much of my afternoon sun.  While I plan to resolve these two next 
year, I would appreciate any help folks could give.

I pick up as much debris as possible in the fall and do not throw it in the 
compost pile.  It is not practical for me to rotate, since my space is not 
large enough to move the plants more than fifteen or so feet from where they 
were previously planted.  I have not been spraying (I more or less grow 
organically), but I am at a point where I would consider using something.
