We should never even whisper the words
Well, Penny went and did it. My tomatoes that I carefully grew from seed, the ones that I protected from cold and sun by bringing them in and out of the house for weeks, looked beautiful and robust and stately just last week, and then, Penny said the words... "curly top virus."
She penned the blog last week about the Bug Be Gone miracle worker. I thought.."I'll do that this weekend."
By Thursday the tops of my tomatoes looked like they were just a little thirsty. After watering Thursday evening, the leaves were still curly. Still in denial, I bought the Bug Be Gone on Saturday and applied it to the tomatoes Sunday... still curling.
I may have killed the bug but the virus seems to live on in my gorgeous, well-loved tomato plants.
I decided I will remain in denial until the plants actually die. Hopefully all eighteen will feel my positive vibes and positive thinking will prevail.
