First ears and tassel starting to peek out!

I think late blight is going to destroy the tomatoes, though. Way too much rain in June here.

We should have plenty of tomatoes for the Tug. The Sakura's are really taking off now. The Big Beef's are looking good but need some sun.

Doug,

Does growing them in the tunnel reduce the risk of blight? Do you spray a fungicide? If so, which one? Thanks.

Don, controlling the inputs really helps as well as good ventilation and some serious pruning which also helps the ventilation. We use something similar to the following for fungicide:

Baking Soda Fungicide
Mix 4 teaspoons (about 1 rounded tablespoon) of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of horticultural oil into one gallon of water. Spray lightly on foliage of plants afflicted with black spot, powdery mildew, brown patch and other fungal diseases. Avoid over-using or pouring on the soil. Potassium bicarbonate is a good substitute for baking soda. Citrus oil and molasses can be used instead of horticultural oil.

I had so much trouble with my tomatoes this year I just picked them green and pickled them
