Tomato crop only in the greenhouse

Well the sunshine has arrived but for my outside tomatoes a bit too late. As you can see in my previous post they have all sort of sickness. The fungi spores have definitely arrived with the wind as the outer leaves and the top of the plants are affected first and now it is spreading slowly to the lower leaves and fruits too. I suspect it is a combination of fuzarium and blight so not much hope for a harvest but I leave the plants in for one more week and see what happens. I have done the same last year and had no luck but if this sunshine will last then I might get lucky and have a few ripe tomatoes. Ohh the good old days, about 3 years ago when I had an amazing crop of tomatoes; I had about 120 plants cropping each to the full.

But it is not all lost; look at the tomatoes in the greenhouse!

And I had a sungold today. Really happy. The weather was really good for all the berries, all of us had a great harvest of strawberries, gooseberries and many other and now it is time for the blueberries. I do like them but I remember having wild blueberries when I was a child from the woods and it was so blue and tasty so I wonder if one could grow them in the garden?

Here is my first blueberry before I ate it; hmm…
