FUNGUS!

I am a fretter by nature, and I am fretting a wee bit right now. About the weather. About fungus. Specifically, about BLIGHT.

I fret about our beautiful tomatoes. Plants that have been growing gorgeously. Plants laden with green fruits. Plants that are drowning in this current weather pattern.

Cooler than usual days. Nearly 4 inches of rain in the last 7 days; 7.5 inches since July 1st (we average 4.26 inches for the entire month). Cloudy, dreary, damp days.

Perfect conditions for blight. Holding my breath, fingers crossed…I hope to bring some tomatoes to market next week.

How is your tomato crop doing where you are?

Here is come info from Cornell about late blight in tomatoes.
