Yesterday, I opened up my tentgarden to cut the suckers off my tomatoes. This is a practice that every gardener should do. The object is to cut out those tomato branches or stems that grow in the “V” of other branches coming off the main vine. These stems usually don’t produce much but will grow hugh if you let them, taking energy away from the main vine and other branches that are fruiting.
While I was doing this, I noticed two moths that seemingly came out of nowhere. They were heading towards the now unprotected tomato plants. Though I was successful at thwarting their flight plan, the experience got me to thinking about how those moths were looking for places to lay their eggs. If I hadn’t stopped them, then I could be picking off green-horned tomato worms about the time my tomatoes start ripening.
Our netting products are great for keeping these insects out of the garden. In fact, make yourself a tentgarden and enjoy clean and healthy tomatoes, greens, cucs, zuccs, and whatever else you want to grow! Not to mention you’ll save money and time that would have been spent trying to keep the bugs off your plants the whole growing season.
