Update: I discovered late blight in my garden yesterday, 8-16-2009. I’ll harvest as many heirlooms and cherries as possible. I was inundated with phone calls this morning, 8-17, from folks wanting to know what they could do about late blight in their garden. Unfortunately, this late in the game, there’s not much anyone can do.
Or say a little.
Late blight is causing severe problems here in the northeast, especially late blight of tomato. Luckily, it’s not found its way into my garden. Which doesn’t mean I’m not completely immune. Millions of wind-borne spores could show up at any time between now and when the rest of my tomatoes ripen. We’ve only picked four heirlooms and are still waiting for many more to ripen, hopefully the remaining winds of summer will be kind and carry any and all nasty spores far away from my garden! And yours!!
This gorgeous pass-along plant was a gift. I embedded a large size photo just to show off its beauty. Thanks Ms. Tina, it finally bloomed!
I’ll say no more.
