It has been a long time times since I've joined in Garden Bloggers Death Day which is hosted by Kate, but it seemed like a good time. Two days ago I had noticed that the groundhog had eaten two of my butternut squash. Well today I noticed that all five of them had been eaten. I guess my squash need to be grown behind a fence next year.
And last but not least are my tomatoes. They look healthy there I guess, but you will notice a lot of missing foliage. I cut all the yellowing leaves out. Some disease is turning them yellow and the leaves slowly die. Above are the Chinese tomatoes that all seem very hard hit.
These are the Heinz. Again the tomatoes themselves look great, but the plant is mostly defoliated. I hope they turn before the plant dies horribly. Not all the plants seem affected. Cherokee Purple, San Marzano, and Opalka seem totally unaffected by it. And Gabrielle, Principe Borghese, and Market Miracle see only mildly affected.
