Whilst doing my garden check yesterday evening, I noticed that some of the tomatoes looked less than healthy.
I did an internet search but could reach no firm conclusions about what could be the cause of the malformations. That said, I don’t think it is catching. Rather, it is probably down to an exceptionally dry September, so strange as it felt to be watering in October that’s what I did in an attempt some damage limitation.
Apparently, the weather is set to change after tomorrow, so it might be time to take the bulk of the tomatoes in. It would be heart-breaking to lose the crop and as they haven’t gone red by now, there is little chance of that happening now. In any case, I was growing them for chutney, so I think I will get on with that!
