Can we talk Tomatoes, please?
Hello Tennessee and other gardners,
I'm already dreaming of summer ripe tomatoes but need to rethink the entire process. I had such failure last summer from the heirlooms as well as hybrids. Blight, fungus, rain, whatever contributed to a very low yield and was extremely disappointing, even discouraging. Some of the heirlooms that I started from seed did excellent for a family member in the mountains of zone 5. Even the tomatoes known for their ability to survive southern summers
succumbed. Am curious if any of you had a similair problem and what a possible fix could be this year. It's possible that we gave them too much water last year, going to change that this coming season and plan to mulch well. I don't think I will be planting 100 plus tomato plants again in the near, or distant, future. I realize there is a Tomato forum on Garden Web but wanted to get a read locally, if possible.
