Sorry I’ve had all these gardening questions, guys - as soon as I get one fixed (or give up on it) there’s something else waiting in the wings! Peppers are doing much better, but now the tomatoes are coming ripe and…
I’ve had one, it’s had two. I didn’t think to take a picture, but it leaves one hole in the tomato, I guess a bit smaller than a dime. I haven’t seen any suspicious looking bugs, but then again it’s a jungle in there. There’s netting over it to keep the squirrels out, so the birds 1) can’t eat the tomatoes, and 2) can’t eat the bugs either. I’m trying to be organic here, and I don’t mind sacrificing a few of my tomatoes (I’ve got hundreds of green ones), but if it’s more than a few then I definately mind. If I have to give up organic, well, so be it, but I’d rather not.
So far the only ripe ones are the Burbanks, which are okay - nice and meaty, but so-so flavor. I’ll share with the bugs. When my Brandywines ripen, though, things are going to get serious. I’ve never had a Brandywine tomato and I certainly intend to.
So, what am I looking for? Flying thing? Wormy thing? Does it bite?
