Our beast of yellow pear tomato plants took off. And took over. I had decided to just let them sprawl. after all, I had heard here in Las Vegas it was actually a good thing as the tomatoes stayed cooler closer to the ground.
I realized though that we were having a few problems with tomato horn worms. Since I am too lazy green to use pesticide I thought it would be better to stake them up so I could get a better look at the leaves and try and pick them off as I found them.
They are quite pretty aren't they? "Huge" might be a better word. No ripe tomatoes yet but loaded down with potential. I had originally chosen this variety thinking if the girls got into them and picked a few green ones (which Lily has been known to do) I might not get so mad at them, but I am quite pleased with how they have thrived. This breed might be a keeper. We'll see how she tastes though before I make a decision.
