Late Blight in Floyd County
All 60 of my beautiful lush tomato plants here in Floyd, VA were wiped out in a week by what looks like late blight. They are now just crispy critters!
I managed to harvest a couple of bushels before they completely bit the dust, picking everything with blush or more and with no lesions. Potatoes were also hit so I harvested them as well. We have had almost constant rain here the last month so I was afraid some kind of foliage disease would hit, but I did not expect this. LB in Floyd was also confirmed last month on usablight.org.
Oh well, the rest of my garden is doing great, and I won't let this setback ruin my sunny disposition! I'll buy my tomato needs locally, and try again next year.
