Yes, another post about my tomatoes. So a couple weeks ago i posted about getting hit by late blight. It pretty much wiped out almost all of my tomatoes within just a couple of weeks. i've never seen a plant disease spread so rapidly, and kill so quickly. When the plants really started dying back i picked all the green ones and brought them inside to ripen. Many of them developed the brown blight spots anyway and had to be thrown out. It was so disappointing. :(
So you can imagine my surprise when this patch of tomatoes in my main garden appeared to be blight resistant.
Blight hit this garden, and i pulled a ton of tomatoes that were surrounding these...and yet these show no sign of blight. This photo was taken yesterday, the plants look healthy and perfect. They are loaded with bloom and baby tomatoes are just beginning to appear.
i was really starting to feel optimistic, after all the devastation of losing my tomatoes to this retched blight... it looks like i may actually get some tomatoes after all.
So i poked around in the foliage looking for tomatoes, and found this. :( All the new tomatoes are coming like this. Brown, hard and rotting. Every single one.
So i have a garden full of beautiful, perfect looking tomatoes plants...and still no edible tomatoes. i have searched online and can not figure out what is wrong with my tomatoes. Is this still the late blight? Everything i've seen about the blight is that it affects the foliage first, and then later appears on the fruit. So why do these plants show no sign of blight on the foliage, but the fruit is all coming in diseased???
If anyone can tell me what is going on with my tomatoes i would be so grateful.
