Tomato tradgedy

So, last year, my first year, I only lost two tomatoes all year to animals. But there is something in my garden this year that is sabotaging me in a big way. It waits until the seedlings have two to four leaves and then rips them off, sometimes eating them, sometimes leaving them on the ground. I was absolutely crushed when I found the leaves eaten off of 6 of the 8 tomato plants I was growing. I was forced to head up to Thayer Nursery and buy some seedlings.

Of course the didn’t have the obscure varieties that I wanted to grow, but the selection was pretty good. And, I like working with them more than going to the home center. Andy has been my gardening guru up there for about a year now. Really cool guy and really knowledgable. In addition to the seedlings, he sent me home with some hot pepper wax to deter the thieves… hopefully.
