So DH and DS put up a partial chicken fence around the tomatoes last Sunday to see if that would keep out the nasty gophers that I suspected were eating my ripe tomatoes. It has been a busy week and this morning I when I went out to water the garden, I found 4 tomatoes that were starting to ripen. Quickly picking them, I discovered that one had some bites out of it, however there were three that hadn’t been touched.
They are not fully ripe, however I am not leaving them on the vine to be eaten on by anything. My hope is that we can at least put these in sandwiches. DH and I love tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches when the tomatoes are from our own garden. I think we might get to have at least one or two. There are also more green tomatoes that hopefully will ripen. With cooler temperatures at night (low 50s) who knows!
