Brown spots & caterpillars… any suggestion?

This is the story of my tomato plants… it started beautifully but then things went awry.
One mishap after another gave me the idea of seeking out your help, of all the (much more experienced than me) gardeners I follow, see if there’s a preventive measure I can take for next summer’s batch concerning those big brown spots coming out of nowhere and if those caterpillars are any threat to the tomatoes besides munching on my leaves.

Any suggestion would be more than welcome!

Backyard Permaculture: Starting at home…


Published on the 25 June 2012

I found this video & watch it out of curiosity with no intention of posting it but was surprised to find myself so engrossed in it, having so much fun, that I decided to share it with you…
The gardening happens in Australia so not everything might apply to everyone but there’s a huge amount of valuable information to be preciously saved in our memory bank 🙂
It is indeed 1.12 mn long but well worth the time spent & very relaxing, it takes you away from the every day hassle…I hope you enjoy this!
