Tough year for our tomatoes

The tomatoes aren't doing well. I battled blight since they were three feet high,,,I failed to tie them up properly waiting to do so the following weekend. During the week a storm came through with gusts of winds and blew over half of them down. This photo is after I properly tied them back up. The tomatoes are behind in producing due to very cold nights for over a month in the spring. So far they produced four ripe tomatoes. The plants do have a good amount of tomatoes on them though.

Peppers and onions did well, corn looks great and near ready for picking along with the cabbage and everything else.

My DeerScare is doing it's job. Going on eight weeks now and not one sign of deer.

Fran, beautiful onions!
I have found that one of the best ways to slow disease and insects is to not have any weeds in the garden. I got very busy with work this Spring, and the weeds in my garden are the worst they have ever been. And so is the disease and the insects, and the quality of my tomatoes.

That is a great looking garden. Your onions are awesome.
