Lets move onto a topic other then me stuffing my face with melon shall we, ha. To a topic that doesn't make you smile, the dreaded BLIGHT! After finding blight on my tomatoes and peppers last August I really didn't do much about it. I did remove some branches and spoiled fruit but that was about the extent of it. Since then the tomatoes actually started to rebound with lots of nice new foliage. Well that is not the case anymore:
Blight is back with vengeance. It is not very disappoint this time around however because all the tomatoes are done now. My next garden project will be a major clean up of all blight infected plants and I will be disposing of the material with the city's compost pick up. That way they will still be composted and won't be infecting my garden again next year, at least that is my hope. I think I will also put out any mildewed, cucumber, squash and melon foliage with the blighted stuff.
My plan was to do the clean up this evening but it is such an insipid drizzly day I think I will wait for sunnier times. Looks like the weekend will be sunny and cool so it will be much more pleasant to do the task then. To all the folks affected with blight this year, lets hope for a better season next year.
