August 16th, 2009 - tomato problems

Our tomato garden is out of control. We used some pretty small tomato cages and the plants have completely overrun them. Now, unfortunately, the plants are getting blight because they grew so thick and no air or sun can get in. So it's time for drastic measures. I bought fence posts and a big spool of twine. The plants are being pruned and strung up, then we are hitting the plants and the soil with copper sulfate. Lets hope for the best!!

Other tomato threats. The chickens happen to love them!

More of a people threat ... we leave them alone so they eat other bugs. The tomato garden is loaded with these guys!
