Good garden hygiene may help - remove and bag the vines.  Wash/sterilise any tools before using in potato area after using in tomato area - wash your hands etc.  Prayer???

Poorly Toms

Mmm, I've had them collapse overnight - and I mean collapse - but it was back in my early days of growing  toms when I didn't know what to look out for so probably missed the early signs.  Also I was growing  them in a small high walled garden with very poor air circulation and did what neighbours told me which was to keep the humidity high .

 

 

Please put out a shallow dish of water!

We've noticed that some small mammals ( young hedgehogs in particular) are suffering from dehydration in this hot spell.

If everyone puts out a shallow dish of water somewhere in their garden - a flowerpot saucer will be fine - and keeps it topped up, it will help enormously.  

You may not think that you have hedgehogs visiting your garden, but you might be surprised ............... and the last thing you want to be surprised by is a dead hedgehog on your lawn.

I'll send him over Clari - he'll be thrilled to be called a 'lad' - he was just moaning yesterday about having inherited his father's 'mature hairline' 

HELLO FORKERS!

Now I'm going to show my ignorance. Is Pannetone a misspelling of pantomime OL?

Poorly Toms

Sounds like blight to me.  

Take the tomatoes off and if they're not affected and developed enough they might ripen - if not they'll be fine for Green Tomato Chutney.
