These are actually Shanon’s, mine are about a week behind hers.
I found a hornworm the other day, and wondered how they found my tomato plants. Ewww. The one I found had been “parasitized” as described in the link. Double Ewww! Shanon said she’d seen a moth on her plants, well now we know!
I also planted San Marzanos, Romas, & Better Boys, as well as a jalepeno pepper and a couple of tomatillo plants (from store bought tomatillos, this is an experiment, but I read they grow like weeds, so we shall see) in the “salsa box”, a 4′ x 4′ raised bed the guys made for me….I didn’t get that planted until early January, but everything is speeding right along.
B’ster bought me a food mill, so once the crop gets totally out of control, I’ll mill and make sauce, vacuum pack and freeze, so I can enjoy that fresh tomato flavor all summer long (in Florida, our growing season is fall through late spring).
