Thought I'd revisit this discussion thread.
Remember the tomato plants that I said were "hopelessly lost" to the giant nasty green hookworms, and those plants got put behind the storage/tool shed and left untended. . . . . well, my
Hunny didn't have the heart to uproot them. (He hates to kill things, even bug-eaten plants.)
He just got put them there and left them untended. No water, no fertilizer, nothing.
YOU SHOULD SEE THEM NOW! They are alive and looking beautiful, even with the shorter days and the
colder (near freezing) nights we've been having.
Go figure. Do we have garden gnomes in Arkansas?
They're not setting a huge number of new blossoms but their fruits (tomatoes) are beautiful and we'll be having a nice Fall Tomato salad soon.
