I noticed that the first of my tomatoes to blight were the ones I had rescued (they were almost dead) from the Big Box store, then the ones from the roadside market. The heirloom varieties I got from an organic nursery refused to blight until the very end, and then only suffered slight damage. I'm still harvesting good tomatoes from them.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions!

My heirlooms were most affected, but then that's all I grow, accept for the 'Sun Gold' cherry variety which have held on and produced lots!

You're welcome!
