Tomato Worm Assassin

This is how we take care of tomato worms around here!

We really like birds in our yard anyway and it appears these guys really like tomato worms. We try to encourage them as much as possible.

Pink Grape

Our tomatoes are doing great! This is a Pink Grape Tomato and they are delicious.

We had a 'bout with tomato worms and other things trying to eat them. We are trying to keep them organic and in doing this we are getting a real appreciation for how hard organic farmers must have to work. Fortunately, we found crawling rosemary to deter the snails, cut pantyhose around the pots and tied up around the plant to keep other creepy crawlies out and something special for the tomato worms! Check back tomorrow and I'll show you how we handle them.

First Tomato of the Season!

I am sooo excited, this year is our second attempt to grow tomatoes in our small back yard. And I think my wife has figured out the secret as you can see. This guy is beautiful and smells perfect! (smell is one of THE most important things in picking a good tomato IMO) It is a "Pink Grape Tomato" it is only about an inch long, which is about how big it is supposed to be. And as you can see there are more on the way.
