Hi everybody, here in Germany my tomatillos and tomatoes started out great cuz we had really hot weather in early summer and now it's been all rain for 4 weeks. so guess what? right, fungus! i'm spraying fungizide but still the tomatoes aren't to speak of anymore and some of the tomatillos - while looking better - are starting to drop the fruit. most of them are about walnut size and don't fill the hull. can i still use them for cooking? and besides, what can i do to prevent them from dropping all the crop too early? 

Any inputs are welcome, thanks a whole lot, sanni
