These were my Sungolds a few weeks ago, lush with green foliage, vibrant with ripe, sweet fruit. I picked these tomatoes right after I took this photo (sungolds are orange tomatoes, so these were ripe), and they were so, so delicious.
This is the same plant today. We've been having a cooler, more moist May and June than usual, causing many plants around town to suffer from early blight. My local garden shop was even out of treatment supplies in stock. My plants are about 90% affected, and I've nearly stripped the foliage bare. I think I'm going to have to ditch them and start over.
Ah well. I can't say I'm disappointed. It's always exciting to learn something new even from failure, and I'm eager to try again. So if any of you have had experience with early blight and found a good solution....I'd love to hear about it!
