Thanks, I do know those are the Asian ones coming inside, but at this point I will take anything that will eat aphids, lol. Don't they eat aphids, too?

Well, they continue to grow. I don't know why, but Kellogg's Breakfast, on the corner to the left in the first photo, is getting it the worst. I keep removing leaves and just sprayed with Daconil again, but poor KB looks pretty sparse. One of my fav's, too. Oddly, where the mulch is the thinnest the plants are bushiest.s [IMG][/IMG]It looks like I may get a harvest if I keep up with it. Fingers crossed, lots of flowers, and hoping for late frost this year so I can still bring in a good harvest.

I had a Costoluto Genovese that only had 1 tomato about 3 oz and the plant died already.
The tomato was ripe last week which was good considering it is a 85 day tomato and I planted memorial day weekend.
