Fresh off the vine:
I had not inspected the tomatoes since Tuesday when I watered (we’ve been in a dry spell here, which started approximately the minute I planted the willow tree), and on about four of my plants a full third of the plant had been defoliated by hookworms. Taylor and I just sat on the ground for about 45 minutes and picked a dozen of the bastards. I don’t want to use BT if I don’t have to, so I’m just going to be on these worms like ugly on an ape for a few days. Fuckers.
They worked QUICK, too. It was seriously only about 48 hours. A few of them were three to four inches long and as wide as a sharpie.
