I live in hot and humid North Florida -- and even here you can have
tomatoes with out fungicides.  Of course disease comes -- and eventually
the plant dies, but this doesn't happen until I've gotten loads of
tomatoes.  I know that my plants won't make it from Febuary to December
(our frost free times) -- but I just plan on two crops, and a time during
the worst weather where I'm reduced to buying tomatoes from the local
farmers market.
