Speaking of tomatoes, I got this in my FG newsletter:

Scary.  I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Cloudy, cool and misty is the perfect set-up for late blight. About a
decade
ago, when I was working for Extension, we left for the 4th of July
holiday.
Everything was fine - just the normal bugs. It started drizzling the next
day, and when we got back to work, the phones were ringing off the hook.
Farmers were crying as they called in and said it looked like somebody had
poured hot used motor oil on their fields. Everything was wiped out in a
matter of days.

Interesting article Donna; it does sound serious.  I'm not in the area
mentioned and all 4 of my plants I started from seed, so I think I'm
good.
I've got lots of green tomatoes on them now, just it itching for them to
turn red.

We had nice weather through spring, then a sudden spate of 90s ten days
ago and now a sudden downturn in temps to 70s, but expected to go back
into 80s today.  It's been cloudy while cool and they keep talking rain,
but we only seem to get mists and tiny sprinklings. When it was so hot I was too busy to water anything other than those plants in desperate need.
But now, w the 3 day weekend I'm giving everything a good long drink.

Seen this article on tomatoes this morning and thought some may be
interested
in it.  Guessing I should go out and check mine.  DH has been in charge
since
my mother had surgery on Tuesday as there isn't any daylight time
between
work
and visiting her.

Hoping everyone has a great holiday and enjoys some BBQ.
