He's dead [the pink BW], Jim . . . .
The [yellow] BW is also sick, but not as sick, and it does have a few tomatoes on it, so I left that one in
Well, now the yellow BW is near death:
I did pull three decent-sized tomatoes off it this weekend, though they were more orange than yellow. I'll try eating them as soon as they soften up a bit and see how they taste. Then I think I'm going to pull it.
My Black Krim is also looking very grim:
I've gotten a handful of golfball- and marble-sized fruits off it, but they're red, not purple/black.They're tasty, so it's a shame that this plant, too, is a goner.
My Green Zebra, Cherokee Purple, and Mister Stripey all look pretty decent right now (that's the GZ behind/left of the Krim). Here's a Stripey:
But they're all so close to the sick plants that I'm terrified they're going to get it, too, whatever "it" is.
Next year I'm going to put my tomatoes all the way on the other side of the garden
