Like everyone else in the valley, we were recently hit with the tomato blight. Just a week ago we had a raised bed of lush greenery that was shading the many heirloom tomatoes. The blight has reduced the bed to a mass of brown stems that are being weighed down by the plump red fruits. Our friend, Kathryn, suggests that the soil may be lacking the nutrients that the plant needs to stave off the disease. Hopefully, next year we might have better luck because the beds will be fertilized with composted goat poop!
