Bang Goes the Theory

By Danielcarruthers

green tomatoes affected by blight
Recently, after the first signs of blight appeared on my outdoor tomatoes I picked the crop rather than leave them to rot on the plants and wrote a post about my experimental approach to preventing the green fruit from succumbing to rot. My theory was that as vinegar is known to have anti-fungal properties – and blight is a fungus – soaking the tomatoes in a strong vinegar solution before drying them out and then storing them might do the trick. Readers don’t waste your vinegar – it didn’t work – they rotted anyway!
