|Tomato Blight & Tomato Hornworm|
|It’s that time of year.|
Wilma has unsuccessfully searched for the Tomato Hornworms decimating her plants. They can do a lot of damage quickly. Wilma reports her plants have been nearly defoliated by this critter. If you find the hornworm, remove him immediately and drop him in a jar of soapy water or feed him to the chickens or fish. Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) is organic and effective, especially when the worm is small. Birds and beneficial insects can help too.
Tomato blight is turning up in staff gardens too. After waiting all summer for homegrown tomatoes, this is highly disappointing. Up to a point you can cut the blight spots out of your tomatoes and eat them anyway. This disease must be prevented before the fact. Try to beat the blight before it hits - check out our Garden Guide hints for preventing tomato blight!

|FROM WILMA: Yesterday I spent several hours catching up on some gardening. I recently had cataract surgery and one of the restrictions was no gardening for a couple of weeks. Most of my time was spent weeding - a flower garden at my church, a small planting at Beech Community sign, and in my garden.|
Invasive autumn clematis had taken a strong hold among the Lazy Wife Greasy Beans (Sow True Seeds) I planted. This is the first year I have grown them - have any of you grown them? They get their name from the fact that gardeners (traditionally the women of the family) could wait until the pods were quite large but still tender to harvest them. They are considered an heirloom variety from Madison County.
While working in the garden I saw a few butterflies (no Monarchs) and other pollinators. A couple of “dueling” hummingbirds were attracted to native honeysuckle as well as to a stand of out-of-the-way jewelweed. There are several plants of milkweed around and I keep hoping the Monarchs will arrive.
