We start this week with a moment of silence for the early girl tomato plant that has been laid to rest. Last week I noticed black spots on the tomatoes and yellowed leaves. I had hoped reading the plant bedtime stories and crushing old antibiotics into the soil would nurse the plant back to life. Alas, neither proved to be a formidable solution against what the Internet tells me was bacterial speck.
The tomato plant was put to rest tonight at 6PM central time. Visitation will be the remainder of the week.
Enjoy the rest of the video highlighting the other plants in their efforts to avoid the plague.
