IMG_2071Heavy short rains and humidity have lead to early blight in a tomato patch. One patch is doing fine perhaps due to straw mulch and some tomatoes in the infected patch seem to be resilient. We should still see some tomatoes. Not as many as we’d like but that’s farming.

But on another note, the rain is definitely helping keep all the other plants happy. The peppers are looking happy again: thanks to the ladybugs! Lots of lady bug larvae were seen in the patch.

Lady bug larvae is the answer to the skill-testing question!  We have only one winner. Way to go Karen!
