I don’t know about you, but this hot weather is really killing my desire to cook. Lately, it’s been more about assembling meals instead of cooking them. Salads, sandwiches, and yogurt seem to be the favorites right now. Am I alone here?
Lucky for me, the garden is providing me with lots of things to assemble. My eggplant is out of control!
An eggplant post will be coming your way in the next week. It is my current favorite vegetable.
A close second are my tomatoes. However, I seem to be having a problem with the tomatoes.
I know it’s those dang squirrels. Thieves!
I had a similar problem last year and it was only with one specific tomato plant. I didn’t plant that variety this year. As it turns out, those little varmints like this new variety too. Again – just one of my plants. (I have 6 total)
What is the deal and how do I stop them?
My first plan was cayenne.
Well, those little buggers are smart. They just went after a new one and left the cayenne infected one to rot.
I’m attempting garlic spray again tonight.
Have any of you had this problem? Any brilliant ways to fix it?
Please help me save the tomatoes!
