A few weeks ago, I posted Growing Maters, to show you a different method for planting tomatoes that would require less work/watering. After hubby planted our eight plants, we took a little trip to mom and dad’s and he did the same thing there for them. Fool proof. Right?
Enter….aphids. I watched for the big ugly tomato worms….but was surprised at finding our plants covered in nasty tiny white critters! I talked to mom…. googled some organic ways to rid our plants of the pests, treated them with sprays of soapy water…. and wallah! I. Killed. Them. Overnight.
But do not think the method does not work. Look at the bounty now ripening on our kitchen counter!
Here we found tomato TREES!
By the way. We are not giving up. We are starting over in hopes of a bountiful fall gathering. Prayers are always welcomed. 🙂
It’s folks like hubby and I that keep the farmer’s market in business.
Have a great week and be nice to people!
