Blight

Seems to be never ending.
All but a few tomato plants affected.
Spuds all treated...just a case of what we can salvage now.

May change the location of the garden completely next year

crop rotation can help ,a couple of years with no toms or spuds in that location will help and you get to retain/improve the soil you have been working.

move the location for t n s and use that space for other stuff

The weather recently hasn't helped (I'm told)

Massive storms, then incredibly hot after

we never plants T & S in the same location 2 years running...it's just that blight appears to be becoming a regular thing...might give them a miss altogether next year

t n s in a new place might give the best of both options ,weather matters but a few bender poles ,some string and plastic sheet avoid most weather
