Late Season Tomato Blight

ICK! It happened. Late season tomato blight hit the garden. My neighbor had told me a few days ago that he'd lost his tomatoes. I thought I was going to be lucky because I hadn't seen sign of it, but no such luck.
Now I remember why I gave up with vegetable gardens all those years ago. It's a lot of work, there's too much rain or not enough rain, and then you wind up feeding bugs and slugs and other critters OR you end up with so much of something that it's rotting in the yard before you can deal with it.
Better to support the local farmer and just buy fresh what you need.

  1. Oh no! I love homegrown tomatoes. I think I would be devastated! Although, I'm not much a gardener myself.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
