My tomato plants are heirloom, grown from seed so I was hoping we might escape the dreaded blight the community gardens are all experiencing this year. I have been diligently cutting off all leaves which hang too close to the soil and disgarding them in the plastic borough bags, but after our three inches of rain yesterday, in checking the garden, I found four plants with wilting and spotted leaves. One variety is the teardrop-shaped tomatos. So cute! I hope I don't lose any and it would be such a shame since they are so close to being ripe.
