I planted Tomatos on arguably the hottest day of the summer. It was probably about 6 weeks ago, my how time flies. They are now about 4 feet tall and the stakes I used to hold them up are struggling. I had one snap at a “y” in the plant. I tried to patch it up by splinting it and wrapping it with some cotton string. We’ll see. I hope the branch doesn’t die, because it has about 6 tomatos that are just getting going. I’d hate to lose them.
If I do, I may cut them open and see if I can harvest their seeds for next year. Or, they might become fried green tomatos….
My basil has been attacked by some kind of insect. The leaves are all chewed up. I think I might need to get some lime to put on them to keep the buggies away.
