Well, it seems the stinkbugs invited their friends the butterfly and the beetles over to my tomatoes for a little get together! See them here, all enjoying some juicy tomato puree? I quit. The fight has gone all out of me and I’m content to let them feast for the brief time the plants have left. Shame on me, I know, but I can’t seem to focus on the tomatoes any more. I guess it’s because the last 3 or 4 tomatoes I took off of this plant were hard and white and green inside while they seemed very red and ripe outside, so it’s not like I’m giving up a delicious crop. I actually sliced some last week and threw them away. So sad. But they were good while they lasted. And now I’m just hosting a big bug bash!
Thanks for visiting my blog
I'm glad you've found my garden journal. Perhaps the only thing greater than the satisfaction of nurturing a seed to a seedling to a blooming or producing plant is the joy of sharing nature's bounty with others. Whether I'm peddling garden tomatoes we can't possibly eat or sharing stories about why the verbena isn't doing well, my garden connects me. It connects me to the earth, to our wildlife friends, to fellow gardeners, and, to myself. So, welcome. I hope you'll feel connected here.
