It is now time to start planning and seeds for our vegetable and herb garden and I'm struggling to get the motivation. For the past few years it seems like a loosing battle with 2 diseases: blight on my tomato plants and powdery mold on my zucchini and squash. We have only one spot in our yard that gets enough light for growing so I have to put my plants where they are. Each year I dig my holes and add bone meal and organic fertilizer and by the end of the summer we battle with trying to get the tomatoes to ripen before the plant dies. We spray with Serenade weekly once the plant shows signs of blight and powder mold. Our zucchini, cucumber and yellow squash yield is tiny compared to what it should be. It's frustrating. Is there anything I can do to stop these diseases before we plant? Honestly, I'm thinking about just giving up and buying stuff from the farmer's market. I love growing our own food but the frustration is real. Any suggestions???
