The consecutive 100+ degree days didn't help - that's for sure. I also had problems with BER on the Gargamel tomatoes, but only those two plants. Sungold split as usual which was another two plants. The downburst winds from a nearby thunderstorm broke the main stem of one of the plants. I already knew I needed better cages staked down.

Lots of trial and error, and a whole lot more learning.
