The Whole Picture
Since I've spent so much of my time boasting about my garden this summer, I should paint an honest and accurate picture of how not everything is thriving. Tonight, I chopped down over half of my tomato plants which had been striken with blight. Actually, they all have it, but the others don't have it quite as bad yet, so I'm hoping to get a few more cherry tomatoes out of them.
These are what used to be my peas. The tomatoes killed them. Rotten tomatoes.
The ghosts of tomatoes past.
I'm going to try to ripen these tomatoes with my superpowers. Or, by the power of sunlight and / or ripe bananas and paper bags.
