We have lived in Georgia for eight years. I’ve been growing vegetables here for seven years. I’ve battled slugs, aphids, thrips, and the dreaded tomato horn worms. I’ve set up rain barrels and coaxed plants along in the constant 100+ temperatures. And never, EVER, before this year did I have any problems with my tomatoes simply disappearing.
Never before did tomatoes simply start appearing atop the fence.
Never before did my husband set up a video camera to catch the shameless thieves, until now:
It’s mid-July and I’ve already processed about a gallon of tomato sauce. But that might be it, because right now my plants are BARE.
Have I mentioned that I hate squirrels? I really, REALLY hate squirrels.
