Re: How's the Canning

I don't think anyone up in the northern part of the state will have tomato to can. Barely enough to eat. We have a late season blight and it is killing the tomato,potato, cosmos and hollyhocks. The tomato look good one day and then they start turning black. The fruit even has a bad smell to it.

Re: How's the Canning

Consider yourselves lucky. Everyone in the northern tier of Pa and from Boston to Ohio is suffering from late season blight. We have picked about 8 tomato and the vines are just black and wilted down to nothing.
