We have a tomato thief in the vicinity. In the last 3 days we have been stripped of all but one of my Striped Germans and at least 4 Cherokee Purples. And one of those Cherokee purples was a big boy. It is not the normal culprits in my garden. These are the ones I am normally on the look out for:
Ryle tasting the bok choy in last year's garden
And Gray acting innocent
However these thieves restrict themselves to the sorrel, radishes, and strawberries. After all, you plant extra for your invading varmits, right? Gray has been known to attempt thievery of tomatoes, but usually requires help because of height issues, so I don't think he is the varmit I am after today. I think I may have to wrap the plants in mesh to protect them. We were unceremoniously stripped of lots of tomatoes also.... I guess it as just a matter of time. Off to the store to get more protective gear...
Grrrrrr..... If it's not one thing it's another! Well, let's hope this leads to Happy Gardening!
