The problem with vegetable gardens is they have no respect for my schedules. Just about the time I’m ready for some beaching relaxation, my tomatoes overpowered their supports and dove to the ground. Within a day, the tomato hornworms made it almost impossible to find any tomato leaves among the weeds. When I got back from vacation it was even harder to find anything! And the peas which had been forming pods were now drying on the vine.
