Rain keeps interrupting my tomato activities, but I began hardening mine off. Hopefully they will finally go out later this week.

Typically I start and grow all my tomatoes from seed, mostly heirlooms but a few OP hybrids every now and then.
This year I'm "Trying" to grow a tomato in a pot (usually they're all in the ground), it's a dwarf variety called Rosella Crimson. I say "Trying" because it started out pretty rough since something kept eating the leaves! At one point the plant was a little skeleton! I dug all around in the soil thinking there must be a cut worm in there somewhere but never could find one!!!
But I didn't give up! Put some of the chicken's oyster shell grit all over the top of the soil about an inch thick and now my little plant has new leaves. It's a slow start but we'll see what happens!!
