At first I didn’t know what was happening. Last summer, my tomato plants started out okay, not great, but the weather was cold and then there was all that rain. Still, tomatoes formed, and even if it wasn’t going to be a great crop, it would be a good one.

Or so I thought.

I was gone for nearly three weeks, a neighbor keeping an eye on things and watering as needed. When I got back, the tomatoes looked like they were just rotting on the vine, all scarred up.

That’s when I learned about tomato blight. It was affecting everybody.

So far so good this year in my garden. I’ve got a real bumper crop coming. But now the news is that the blight is back. I haven’t seen the signs yet. But this is just the time it set in last year.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
