Shopping, particularly in the GC, has been reported as leading to exhaustion and starvation Jo - chocolate prevents this - it's well known

Tomatoes

Don't know what others do, but when we had it the plants went in the council garden waste bin.  If you have the facility to burn it then I'd do that.

So much depends on weather conditions and whether there are affected potatoes/tomatoes nearby.

There are some varieties that are supposed to be blight resistant but I've not tried them. 

I've found that removing lower leaves as soon as the first truss has formed, thinning foliage as the season progresses and keeping leaves as dry as possible has worked this year, but it may just have been my turn for good luck

Sounds good PP 

My container has been planted up with the Yellow Wave phormium and three Melting Fire heucheras http://www.perennials.com/plants/heuchera-melting-fire.html  and it's on the front porch looking fab!

I'll fill another pot with bulbs to put out next spring

Sunshine and white flurries, Dove?  It's been chucking down all morning here.

Still sunshine here - I've got washing on the line nearly dry - more clouds than there were, but still enough blue sky to make a sailor a pair of trousers   ... and you're nearly nine and a half miles away ...

Dough rising - home made pizzas for supper
