Heroic Hammy

Here's Hammy with all those parasites cocooned up.
I am actually pretty sad about this but then again my tomatoes are better off.

Sad News for Hammy

I hesitiate to post this both because it's sad and also because it is gross but it is part of the cycle of life.

These maggots are parasitic wasps larvae emerging to spin their cocoons.

Hammy doesn't have a lot of personality but this still makes me sad. He just loves eating tomato leaves.

I've edited this to make the image smaller.  If you like you may click on it to see the gross details.

No Tomato

That's a joke that a few hundred people will get.
OK so this year I have

  • Pruden’s Purple
  • Box Car Willie
  • Beefsteak 
  • Cosmonaut Volkov
  • White Queen
  • Yellow Brandywine 
  • Amana Orange
  • Jaune Flamme
  • Sun Gold
  • Snow White
I could be wrong about a couple there.

Sherpes may not know where they are.
