This was the first of Ray's tomatoes that we picked.
It looks more like a little red pumpkin to me!
A few days later we were able to pluck this one.
(Now this looks more like a tomato!)
Then all we got were half-eaten green tomatoes! What the heck?!
Then we not only discovered the culprits, we caught them in the act!
Notice the guy on the right in the photo below, making his way down to feast on another tomato, he looks like a part of the stem!
These two guys are doing a very good job of ruining any hope of enjoying tomatoes from the pot on the back deck! Yuck!
Maybe we'll have better luck with the one Ray planted in the ground on the side of the house.
Anyone have any suggestions? When Ray 'googled' it all he found was 'take them off and squish them'! I'd rather prevent them from coming around than resorting to murdering them.
Marcy, I'll have to go back and read your gardening post from early spring!
