Disease is rampant this year!
No real question here...just venting. Here in the mid-atlantic area we've had such hot and humid conditions that all of my plants are suffering from some form of foliar problem. They have early blight, bacterial spot, etc. and it seems as though I'm spraying them with something every few days. Over the weekend I sprayed with Daconil and/or Mancozeb, today I sprayed with Bonide brand Liquid Copper. My poor Brandywine Sudduth is basically stripped of all foliage except the very top which hasn't yet been obliterated by bacterial spot.
I've tried to remove affected foliage as best I can and continue to spray with fungicides/copper but the heat and humidity won't break. My Cherokee Purple is also naked except for new growth at top. I think my tomatoes' best hope for survival is a change in this weather pattern. Thanks for letting me vent. :(
