I guess my time was a-comin’ sooner than I thought. At least my proverbial black thumb wasn’t a part of this destruction. That much I can say brings me a bit of comfort.
My poor tomato plants! Just last week I was so excited to have new blooms and baby tomatoes. It is amazing what can happen within hours. If I remember correctly, I didn’t check on my plants for about 36 hours over the weekend. Meaning, I watered them on Friday evening and then didn’t water them until Sunday (it rained Saturday).
This is the lovely horrifying surprise I was greeted with:
Needless to say, I’m sure there’s a good God reason why this creature is part of Earth. Like when it becomes a moth and flies away, eating mosquitoes or tiny spiders. Don’t take my word for it, though.
One last sad picture…
So now that my tomato plants are officially down for the count, all that’s left of my garden is the lemongrass, oregano and mint.
Fall/winter (whatever that is in Florida) might as well just get here now – I’m done gardening for this season.
How is your garden doing?
