Exotic Gardening with Rare and Strange Plants

Holy Green Tomatos!

I recently went to check on my tomato crop the other day and realized my tomato plants had been hit by something fierce. We’ve had rain for weeks and the nights have been a bit crisp. They looked a bit fried and almost has if he had an early frost or something. Either way the plants needed to be cut down and I harvested what I could. Green tomato salsa anyone?

I'll let these ripen up on the windowsill

Have you got a bunch of green tomatos?

    They suffered from Late Blight, the same disease that caused famine in Ireland when the potato crop failed.

    The spores grow in wet conditions. If you can keep your plants dry, they won’t be affected.
