maisymulcher introduces herself


hello fellow growers, I am new to computers so you will have to bear with me. But I am an old hand at growing veggies, and now have 5 raised beds in my back garden providing almost enough veggies for my husband and I.
I will add to this blog at a later date along with a few pics of the garden, one question though, has any one else had their tomato crop wiped out by blight?

Hi, yes I think you will probably notice amongst quite a few of us the toms just couldnt survive the warm and damp weather. Guess the toms in the shops will soon be going up in price too!

Yes I lost mine this year. I've grown the same variety for something like 25 years and this is only the third time they've gone done to blight

I think I had an attack of blight too, but I removed as many of the infected leaves as I could and went on to harvest quite a decent crop of `Gardeners delight`!

My outside ones all had to be burnt due to blight, but I've still got two plants in the greenhouse! - tomatoes not really ripening now - so I'll be picking them all tomorrow to ripen indoors. Blight seems to have hit all over the country this year.

Hi Maisy, Mine too! I managed to get quite a few tomatoes before digging the plants up. I hadn't realised they had blight so probably left them for too long.

I also picked off the nasty blighty parts on my tomatoes ,I am pleased that I did not uproot and burn them because I still had quite a lot of toms that were perfect,on the same plants.
