This has been the strangest season I’ve ever had for vegetable gardening. Unprecedented pests, brilliant, barrier busting squirrels, leaf-footed bugs, stink bugs, birds, and tomato hornworms. I feel very lucky to have gotten a great deal of chocolate and black cherry tomatoes since none of these pests seems to care for them, and I have a new crop of Celebrities ripening now. I was just picking cherry tomatoes, and I saw a flash of orange, so I reached into the tangled vine and pulled this out.
I guess I’ll have to return to the saying “When pigs fly” because “When tomatoes grow horns” has actually happened.
