Plant varieties can be more or less resistant to diseases. Many people like heirloom varieties, possibly because they are perceived to taste different, but they may be more susceptible than the hybrids which have been bred for many factors, including disease resistance.
Chemical control of diseases was introduced, including organic products. Some can encourage plant vigor as well as managing diseases.

All in all it was a very good day with the sun not hot on our backs and the rain holding off. We look forward to more harvesting next week.
