Default Non-blighting plants

I've been fighting tomato blight in my garden for a few years. Last year, before I could go bag up the spent tomato plants, ds went out and stomped every leaf right into the dirt. I can now consider the dirt as saturated with blight spores as it's possible to be.

So my new strategy will be to not grow anything blight-able for a few years. So, no tomatoes or potatoes obviously. I suspect squash varieties propagate blight so I'm not doing those. Sunflowers are out, too.

I'm thinking every kind of green in existence would be okay. Root veggies: beets, turnips, carrots, parsnips should be okay.

Any other thoughts on what I can or shouldn't grow?

What about snow peas?

Remember, I'm not trying to just grow something that will fruit despite the blight, but won't help the spores propagate at all.
