Blight

garden.burner

The second half of the summer here, from mid-July onwards, was exceptionally wet.  So wet, in fact, that we got blight on our tomatoes, even though they were in the polytunnel.  The worry now is that we have to pull out and burn all the affected vegetation or risk a recurrence next year.  We long-since gave up trying to grow tomatoes outdoors because of blight infestations and it would be more than a little irritating if we now had the problem indoors as well.  Like so many other growers, for years our tomato of choice has been ‘Gardener’s Delight’ but it may be that we have now to start thinking about more blight-resistant varieties.
