Too much rain?

Is anyone in central Alabama concerned about the amount of rain we have received lately? My tomatoes look beautiful now, but if it keeps raining like it has been, I am concerned about blight. I seem to remember that last summer we got a lot of rain and my tomatoes went downhill.

Should we be worried?

An ounce of prevention.... you may want to start spraying with Daconil, a good general fungicide. That will not guarantee you won't get any blight, but it will help.

Sigh...I just found some evidence of blight on a few of my tomato plants today. I removed them and will hope for the best.
