My tomatoes all got blight. I didn't trash the lot and cry over empty pots of tomato sauce like my neighbour. I removed the brown bits and waited. The weather turned drier. I was careful to water the roots only. I removed more brown bits as they appeared. Soon my plants had no leaves left. Nearly all my tomatoes ripened. I only lost a few. As it became colder I removed the unripe ones and let them blush red in a bowl on the kitchen table. Next year I will plant my tomatoes in pots and fill the raised bed with peas.

Tomatoes from the raised bed in my garden.
Salad and the raised bed.
