I am in Zone 8 and I too haveI am in Zone 8 and I too have had trouble with the tomato blight with the exception of this yr and last. I now plant my tomatoes in straw bales and avoid the soil contamination that can cause blight and viruses. It has made a world of difference. I did have trouble with my cukes this year that were planted in the ground..they looked great to begin with but fizzled rather quickly after flowering- I got a grand total of 4 cukes from 2 plants. The leaves were eaten by a yellow looking bug along with some sort of blight. I know how you feel - frustrated when you put the time and effort and get so little back..aggravating to say the least, but there's always next yr! lol
