    I don’t even need the salt.

    Our attempt at tomatoes turned into a critter-beffet. The rabbits, groundhogs, etc. ate good that summer!

    Not for me, thanks. Does that mean I’m not a plugger?

    This was routine when I was a kid. Mom would get so angry when we showed up after gardening with tummies full of raw veggies and not able to eat dinner. One would think she’d be happy we ate veggies. I still eat cherry tomatoes right off the vine. Yum.

    Cucumbers work, too. I also knew someone who would eat raw onions right out of the ground, but that’s a bit much for me.

    YOU BETCHA ! ! ! ! I hail from the Midwest, when I was a youngster, there were more tomato fields around than there were cornfields. Yum Yum Yum . . . . . . . .

    Use those topsy turvy trees to stop the worms.

    Around this part of the midwest. To be more precise the Upper Midwest. Wheat tends to vie with sunflowers and corn for space in amount here.

    Where we live, you have to buy soil amendments, fertilizer, insecticide, little tomato plants to set out (no luck with seed) and spend a fortune on water (drought conditions) just to have tomato worms strip the plantswhile you sleep. The only time we get good tomatoes is the few weeks hot house tomatoes are available at the grocery store.

    We have two of the topsy turvy trees. And we don’t have a problem with tomatoe worms. We do how ever have a problem with the jerks who live south of the condo complex we live in. They steal our tomotoes. Each year we find at least one green one with human teeth marks in it behind the evergreen we have the TTs next to. |Been waiting on the management to put up a 8 foot tall fence around the complex. The jerks also think they have the right to use our private pools as though they were public pools.

    I tried growing tomatoes one year. All the regular ones were damaged by squirrels. They didn’t bother the cherry tomatoes much.

    Please explain how tomatoes and salt give you pre-diabetic. Tomatoes are not considered that high in sugar.

    I’m from CA and when we were kids we visited our cousins in OR. We were out picking tomatoes and stomping these big worms they said ate the garden produce. One squirted on me when someone stomped it!!! yucko!
