Back Home And Blighted
Had a wonderful trip away, I got home late Friday afternoon, we had friends coming for the week end and the were due any moment, I dashed around to check on poly tunnels and garden, Martin was holding the fort while I was away, unfortunately I came home to a disaster in the main poly tunnel,
The potatoes and tomatoes in the tunnel had been struck with Blight a fungal disease that strikes in warm damp weather, There were 6 tomato plants in there, they have now along with the foliage from the potatoes been removed and burned,
The potatoes outside also had the same treatment as there was evidence of Blight on those, the other poly tunnel were the main tomatoes are seem fine, time will tell if it spreads there, there is no treatment so we just have to get on with it.
We had a fab week end with our friends who went home today, unfortunately I have also been blighted with a virus, light headed, aching joints, tired jut feeling ughhhhhhhhhh, I have slept most of the day away today, I can only assume being in an environment packed with people and air conditioning is were I have picked it up, never mind I will bounce back, I have uploaded a load of photos over on my craft blog HERE
Its lovely to be home, no doubt in the next day or so normality will return.
