This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

more fungi

apple diseases (3) apple diseases (2)
apple diseases tomato fungi  004

What a humid summer!

My apples have fungi too. Black mildew on the fruits. The good news is that it washes right off. I picked all my apples today (a bit early) and they washed up perfectly.

Tomato fruits and squash leaves have mildew too.

I see the photographs - and they make me nervous. I think we have enough breezes on our hill to keep fungus at bay. Of course, I think you got a lot more rain at your end of the state.
