The top of one San Marzano tomato was looking wilted, although there was no lack of water.
And there it was.
Is it some other early blight? Is it the dreaded late blight, brought to my attention by Pam Pierce?
Whatever it is, some of my tomatoes have it and perhaps severely pruning any stem showing its effects will help and I'll get a crop, and perhaps not. We often get something bothering tomatoes here, and only sometimes does it wipe out entire crops.
In other really unpleasant news, our deeply beloved cat Fred was probably attacked by a human on Saturday night, based on his tail injuries. We find out tomorrow if he gets to keep any of his tail, and whether or not surgery to remove it will give him relief from what seems to be intolerable pain. Until then, we have Schedule II narcotics and a cat carrier.
Tomato diseases seem like a very small problem, indeed.
