fungus among us

My tomatoes were looking good…until yesterday. The fungal problem I’ve seen (for a number of years running) has returned. It’s no wonder with all of the rain we’ve been getting. So, once again, I won’t be getting many tomatoes from the garden. The good news is that we planted some tomatoes in pots and, so far, they are disease-free.

My pepper plants are looking pretty sad, too. I’m blaming the rain for this, as well.

On the positive side of things (besides the fact it hasn’t been super hot), I planted onions from plants (rather than sets) and harvested my first batch this week. They were a respectable size, which is what I was hoping for. I’d like to have a bunch to store over the winter, so I’m off to a good start. Everything else seems to be performing as expected.
