Rumours are rife about a 'possible tonic/cure" for blight on tomatoes and potato plants. Recommended to be sprayed on 2 -3 times a month, especially in this current batch of heavy rain and humid temperatures we are experiencing.
Have a read here and see what you think. I have just bought some and will give it a try, a 47% reduction is better than none! Mind you, I will have to write that amount on the box of aspirin otherwise I'll forget. My sprayer only takes 1 litre of water, my aspirin is 300mg so I'll try 1/4 to 1/2 a tablet in it.
On a slightly different note, I needed to plant out my few bean plants (Runner and French) and hadn't got any plastic bottles to protect them from the slugs. I 'invested' in 2 x 2l bottles of cheap, value lemonade (18p each), disposed of it (can't stand the stuff), and rinsed the bottles well.
The top was cut off, plus the bottom, then what was left, cut in half. That gave me 4 plant protectors so hopefully they will help keep the slugs and snails from nipping my plants at base stem level. I also used safe for organic use slug pellets just inside the bottles, that way, the birds shouldn't be able to get to them (just in case!).
If you need a mini greenhouse per plant, just cut the bottom off and that gives you a tall cloche (minus the cap) that you can remove if the plant gets too leggy or outgrows it.
In the back garden, we have been busy moving the door of the fruit cage, from left side to the middle. This gives us more growing space and at the end of the year, 2 area's of Autumn Raspberries will be moved from between the Blueberries to this new area (obviously by then, all the rubbish will have gone:
