I'm getting the garden ready for summer and was planning on planting tomatoes and peppers next week. Its a little early, but a bare plot of worked ground is an eyesore. But with the cool wet spring we've been having in the northeast I'm wondering what the summer will be like. With the La Nina, some forecasters have been predicting a cool, wet stormy summer. Thats great for gardens but it can also be terrible for tomatoes. Has anybody seen any signs of blight in nurseries so far? I buy tomato plants locally but blight can be carried on the wind and I'm sure other people in the neighborhood buy from the big retailers and garden stores.
What kind of growing season will we have, folks? Last year was almost perfect, although some early heat waves prevented tomato flowers from setting. The year before that was terrible for blight, although we escaped it until the first week of September and got most of our tomatoes in.

Uh huh. We've already had to spray ours. Plus we had a crazy windstorm (60+) mph that trashed the flowers. They seem to be coming back but not many maters so far.
