Tomato Lovers Lament!

I knew all along that all the rain this season would cause problems for tomato growers in the north east, but now it's official. Check out this New York Times article about a record case of tomato blight! If it doesn't abate, we may all be stuck eating the golf balls they pass off as tomatoes in supermarkets!
Of course, Mitch and I would be sitting pretty with our own crop if we had been able to grow this season, but building construction has completely side-lined us.
That said, my indoor herb garden is going strong, with basil, rosemary, parsley and oregano to spare...
