It's ok, no sign of blight on my toms - I'm just being careful. We had some blight on a couple of plants two summers ago, and by dint of moving the plants apart and inspecting them at least twice a day, picking off infected leaflets, we still harvested a reasonable crop. This garden is at the bottom of a shallow valley (Norfolk doesn't have many deep ones) and we have high boundaries, so at this time of year if the air is still I'm aware of the need to encourage what airflow I can.
Hosta some of our blackbirds will perch on the fat blocks in those wire cages and eat from them - think they're slow learners but they're getting the hang of it now. They also come to the table on the terrace and take mealworms that we put out for the robins.
