The Great Tomato Challenge

photo by Steve Johnnson on Unsplash A couple of years ago I wrote about “the great strawberry challenge” in which I grew different  varieties of strawberries to see how they would do in my gardening conditions. I am now embarking on “the great tomato challenge.” If you looked at the picture on the right and thought I was going to tell you how to grow beauties like that, sorry to disappoint you. That picture represents my goal, not my achievement.                 I have struggled growing tomatoes in my garden. I get lovely plants, until just as the tomatoes are developing. Then the plants get sick looking and die. I am quite sure that the problem is blight. I have looked up remedies from organic to chemical and am planning to try a variety of methods in my quest.
