Of the nine tomato varieties I planted this spring, ‘Lemon Boy’ was slain in a brutal snail attack and yesterday, ‘Copia’ lost half its limbs when a trellis I was moving fell on it like a guillotine. Doh! I hope it recovers.

Who knew the life of a tomato could be so treacherous?

Dead: ‘Lemon Boy’
Wounded: ‘Copia’
Doing fine: ‘Black’, ‘Black from Tula’, ‘Costoluto Genovese’, ‘Sungold’, ‘Sun Sugar’, ‘Celebrity’, ‘Early Girl’
