WILD WAY DIARY: 11/08/23
One of my many tomato plants has it and I’ve noticed that the affected tomatoes take on a milky hue before any signs of blight
Have you noticed this Jack? 🤔
I’m in Bournemouth Dorset 😊
Super helpful post Jack, thank you! I had blight a couple of years ago that took out my whole crop. This year, I spotted one that *might* have had the start of blight (but could also have been heat stress as you point out above) - regardless I ripped it out and the rest seem to be ok! Regarding crop rotation, I don't have a big enough growing space to rotate on any more than probably a 2 year cycle. Is this ok? And does the whole bed have to be rotated, or could you e.g. move brassicas from one end of a 3m bed to the other, and count this as crop rotation? Thanks as always for your helpful windom ☺️
Jack, if there’s been blight in the potato patch, and if you were planting potatoes now for an Xmas harvest would you advise using a different bed?
