Spray for Diseases Today and Prune for Air Circulation

Well June has been terrible for tomatoes and vegetables. Lots of stories of plants rotting and bugs. This was the hottest June on record.

Today we may have showers but after today we have 5 days, at least, of no rain. The humidity already arrived but July will bring more. It's time to spray another round. I put a round out earlier. I will continue with sulfur spray tonight on all my plants. The test run worked fine. No burned leaves.

If you haven't pruned your tomatoes, time to make sure you remove suckers and lower branches. Air circulation is so important at this time.

Every week or two for July is the goal for managing diseases. That is keep up the sprays, pruning, and removal of damaged goods.
