I love plants and gardening! I'm working on turning my black thumb to green. Hopefully this app can help. I'm in USDA Zone 8A.

Solanum lycopersicum 'Costoluto Genovese'

6/24/2019 Time to pour one out for my #tomatoplant since this is about the 8th tomato I've found like this. I hate birds and/or squirrels. I may need to speed up my plan of building a screened in structure to protect the plants.

Put out hot pepper around the plants base and tomato cages then you can "net" them or use sheets(light colored) on top of cages with supports to hold in place.

Thanks @cyndi I was told shiny things but they did nothing. So I have some netting that I'm hoping to receive today.

4/26/2019 The tomato plant is doing amazing! I thought this pot was a bit too big for it when I first planted it in there but, per usual, mom's are almost always right. (My mom assured me it would work out.) I can't wait to see it start growing some fruit! She may need a trim when I have the time to help her grow. #tomato

3/29/2019 Alrighty. #costoluto-genovese #tomato has been planted in a 20" pot. Hopefully she does well being outdoors. She was devouring water when in the AeroGarden!

3/26/2019 This is my #costoluto-genovese #tomato which I'm growing in my AeroGarden. It's taking off and the weather is getting warmer so I have a 20" pot just waiting for me to transplant it. Hopefully the transfer goes well. I just feel some of the leaves aren't doing well due to the spread and I'm not sure how much more I can trim the leaves, beyond what I've already done.
