RIP Tomato Plant

Happy Monday Tuesday!

Hope everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend. Mine could have been better…I wasn’t feeling too great and it was too freakin hot. I feel like I spent all weekend sweating and arguing with the bf about turning on the AC. I went out to the grocery store yesterday to get like 2 things, which isn’t that long of a walk, and I was literally dripping in sweat by the time I got back. You would have thought I went for a run. Have I mentioned I hate summer? Because I do. The good news is I finally found that bug spray stuff in the CVS! I spent Friday afternoon spraying that everywhere. Hopefully I won’t see any buggies this summer.

And speaking of critters…I put my tomato and basil plants outside for a little bit on Saturday, since you’re supposed to get them gradually acclimated to the heat/sun and it was quite sunny out. I went on the computer for no more than an hour, and I turn around a my tomato plant is gone. Like, completely not there save for the very bottom stalk. I just stared in disbelief for a while. To be honest, the tomato plant was getting annoying in its largeness and I was thinking about ditching it anyway (or re-potting it elsewhere) to focus on the basil, but that doesn’t mean I wanted a damn bird to eat the whole thing! I only assume it was a bird because earlier a bird was pecking at it and I shooed it away. Luckily, the bird or whatever it was didn’t seem to have a taste for basil because 3 out of 4 of the basil plants were untouched. I guess it ate the one and decided it didn’t like it? I re-planted some more basil in that spot, so hopefully that starts up soon. Needless to say, my basil isn’t going outside because I fear for its life! Anyone know what I should do? Is there something I should spray on it to keep the Philly wildlife away?? lol.

  1. Wow! I can’t believe something STOLE your plant! I’ve never had that happen to me and we always put plants out on the deck. That’s good that you weren’t too attached to it!

    1. @Deanna I know right? It wasn’t even a few leaves it was just like…the entire thing! There must be some real brazen animals around here haha especially since we’re on a balcony, not even on ground level.

  2. Are you sure it’s not an evil squirrel?

    You know those things to hold up the vines, can’t you make a barrier around it or something?? I honestly don’t know of any other solution.
