Phytophthora is not scary for tomatoes
The main part of the territory of Russia is located in the zone of risky farming. And it is no coincidence that in the West our country is figuratively called the country of "green tomatoes". But it is time to revise this established stereotype, although our climate is really harsh.
A short summer, a sharp contrast between day and night temperatures, abundant dew at the end of summer, the ubiquitous late blight - all this seriously examines gardeners. In a short period of time allotted by nature, it is necessary to have time to grow a lot of vegetable products, and not only for fresh consumption, but also to make preparations for future use.
