Should my tomato rage against the dying of the light....

... Or should I put it out of its misery and try again?

I've got a handful of different seed grown varieties. First they got attacked by whitefly. Then spider mites. Then leaf miners, thrips, who knows what else. ALL the bugs.

I soaked the plants in neem the other night, which seems to have controlled the critters.

But: the picture is of the plants that are the worst off. They're only about a foot high and most of the leaves are chewed off. Do you think it could bounce back? Or should it go gentle into that goodnight?

Man, tough run so far! Hopefully things will ease up for ya.

I think your choice depends a lot on how much garden space you have. Full sun patches are dwindling in my backyard, so I only invite the most promising-looking transplants to move in.
