Gardening questionPosted Friday, August 17, 2007, at 10:13 PM
We do not have much of a garden going this year after I decided to stop watering, but I kept a few things going like one tomato plant, peppers, eggplant, some Chinese squash and a few annual ornamentals.
The tomato plant is what I am curious about. We have fought horned tomato worms and some blight in past years but I have never had a tomato totally defoliated without the hint of an insect. I found a hornworm on a volunteer tomato but NOTHING on this particular hybrid.
No grasshoppers, or other leaf chewing insects to be found, but the leaves, not stems are wiped out except for the very tips and a few sucker shoots. The leaves did not drop from the heat, they were eaten, but nothing around to hint about the culprit. No other plants nearby are affected.
