I was really having a hard time growing tomatoes in my garden. I sowed the seeds, eventually, it sprouted and developed into a young plant. I felt happy and satisfied seeing that it did well. I watched over it everyday. But when its flowers were starting to bloom, That’s the time when the real challenge took place. Aphids were attacking my plant. I tried searching for solutions in Google and followed the suggestions. I tried the water and soap solution, garlic solution, chili solution, and oil solution. I planted marigold as a companion plant for my tomatoes and tried it with mint and basil. I kept planting over and over again. I planted them in containers and even made a raised bed for my precious tomatoes. I was able to plant on the four sides of our yard. But all my attempts ended with failure.
Then at long last I got tired and stopped…. hehe 🙂
I came to a point of accepting that planting tomatoes was really not for me.
After a long while, I started planting again hoping that I will make it. And I gained same result. It’s a hands up for me.
One day, I noticed a tomato plant growing in our yard, but I just ignored it, thinking that it will not survive. It keeps on growing and its flowers bloom. So, I inspected it and was amazed that it’s clean. No aphids! I cultivated the soil around it and installed a support for the plant. It continually grow and bear fruits. Lots of tomatoes in just one plant that I was able to share with my neighbors. This is a gift from nature. Thank you for letting me experience the joy of having this plant.
