|This is the only sign of disease on the entire plant|
|Totally clogged up vascular system|
|What could have been|
I must confess, in an act of desperation, I went to our local gardening center and got three of their healthiest looking, left over tomato plants. In theory, they should still be able to produce tomatoes before our first frost (Oct. 18). If nothing else, this will be an interesting experiment.
What does this all mean for next year? Well clearly, this particular bed is going to be off limits for tomato and potato plants for quite some time to come. Does this mean I need to plant not 1, but 2 plants of each variety that I want to grow? Do I need to plant two separate patches, far away from each other. I am not sure I have room for all this.
I would love some advice of people who may have been in a similar situation!!!
