The guilt of pulling out two tomato plants

Post  milaneyjane on 7/9/2010, 12:52 am

I was trying to spray my tomato plants for septoria leaf spot, but I realized it was going to be near impossible with the proximity of SFG to fully treat the two out of control indeterminate tomato plants that started the whole chain reaction. I yanked them out (OUCH) in hopes that I could fully treat the romas that were right next to them and not nearly as bad. What a horrible feeling. Sad

Sorry to hear that. I felt the same way yesterday when I cut down 5 very healthy okra plants, but they were just too close to the others and nothing was producing. But ouch!

Culling tomato plants

Post  junequilt on 7/9/2010, 12:39 pm

I feel your pain, mileyjane. I can hardly stand to even pull out volunteer plants, and as a result, I have annual purple mint and Mexican sunflowers scattered all over the garden. But you have done a good thing for your Romas!
