Spring vegetables

We seem to have defeated the flea beetles on the tomatoes! The new tomato growth  is showing no sign of the buggers. Now there is another, unknown, threat to tomatoes that seems to be spreading through the Garden.  It is causing the leaves at the tops of the tomato plants to curl up tightly. Only one of my plants has shown symptoms but the rest are as yet unaffected. They are producing flowers and getting taller, so that’s good.

We took the row cover off the bok choy today and it looks beautiful! I think I’m going to make more use of row cover in the future; it works.  We picked bok choy and chard today. I can’t wait to saute it with some garlic.

The kohlrabi is looking really good too.

    When my tomato leaves curled up like that, closer inspection revealed an aphid infestation under the leaves. When they suck the juice from the smaller leaves, they curl up tight. It took a heavy neem oil application to get rid of them, and the plants are still recovering.

    Good luck!
