Tomato Plants 2 (2008)

It’s already been a month since I last update on my tomato plants. I took the first two pictures just before we went for our vacation and the last two pictures were taken when we came home. The plants grow really fast and tall until if snap and I have to cut some of the branches off.


I am not sure what happen this year but I found out there were not many flowers and fruits on the plant. I spoken to Zue and she advised me to cut off some of the leaves. I did that yesterday and hopefully it will bear some fruits. And guess what!!! I found some hornworms chomping away on the leaves. It's just freaking me out and Carlos helps me to remove some of it. With this kind of wet and humid temperature I am sure there is more hiding between the leaves.

Gert ... I don't know if worms manufacture natural manure. If yes, perhaps they are 'contributing' to the fast growth of your plants. Haha!

Rita, this is bad worms and it did nothing but eat up all the leaves. How is your tomato plants coming along?

Gert ... My plants going the opposite direction of yours. LOL! I haven't planted them, no interest at all especially knowing about the worms, etc. Once in a while David will say, "your tomato plants have fallen on the ground" (I'll prop them up) or "hmmm .. I think your tomato plants look a bit dry" (I go out and water them). HAHA!

Lesley, I also not sure why its has so much leaves until I need to trim some of it off.

Rita, not every plant will attract the worms. Your soil is new and it should be ok. I don't think your plants will grown well in the small pot. You should transfer them and let David take care of the plants :) :)

Gert, did it work to get some flowers after you trim off some of the leaves?
