Ya,right! Weather and blight no problem,but then they raise their prices blaming those two items.

My CSA in Waltham lost the whole tomato crop.
I think my next door neighbour has it. I'll know within the week. He got his tomatoes from Home Depot.

My tomatoes too are very sad looking this year and I think most were "disease resistant"

My CSA in Tyngsboro (in the Sun readership area) stands to lose its whole potato crop, plus most of its tomatoes and some of its herbs to late blight. They use organic methods (not certified organic, certification costs too much $$$) and are looking at wide crop loss.
