We always grew a lot of tomatoes in the past years until a couple of summers ago. We have a garden behind our house in the back near some woods. Well, every year we had lots of tomatoes until two summers ago. My husband and daughter had planted 36 tomato plants one warm afternoon.
The next morning my husband went to the garden and something had chewed all of the plants off. All that was left were the stems! I'm not sure if it was the deer or rabbits. We lived here for about 18 years and never had a problem until then.
So, my husband decided to start planting a few tomato plants in the front of our house. The deer don't come in the front of the house so it was safe. Anyways, we have a few tomatoes for eating but not enough for canning. There is a neighbor who only grows tomatoes and they are really nice ones every year. He lives all alone and gives the tomatoes away since he can't eat all he grows.
