So mad right now! Probably at rabbits
I've been growing tomatoes in my veg garden for about 7 years now. THe garden is fenced and there is "rabbit fence" that runs along the perimeter as well.
I just got a phone call that 1/3 of my newly planted grown from seed tomatoes (each a different kind) was nipped off at soil level with the top of the tomato just laying there on the ground. Whatever did it, decimated my paste tomato bed.
I've never had this happen before. To peas or beans, yes, but never to tomatoes. My friend who looks after the gardens says he is sure it must be baby rabbits because he has never seen so many rabbits around as there are this year. Would rabbits chew off an entire bed of 16 plants and go do the same chomping here and there in other tomato beds?
I have never seen any cutworms in my garden...
Will a deeply planted tomato regenerate itself from the stem or am I sunk?
Is it too late to start tomatoes from seed again (Frost/freeze in early to mod October).
Sigh. I can't believe this. I gave away all my extras at the swap.
