Dead Tomatoes

By Donna Dell’Aglio and Michael Townsend

Well, despite all of our efforts, the results were disastrous. Everything started well. Our plants appeared to be sturdy. They grew and grew — then stopped growing only to sprout mutant little tomatoes that seemed to become infected with some kind of fungus. Our pepper plants failed to become pollinated (I think — we had lots of flowers but no baby peppers). It was a sad experience — far from the beautiful, lush plants that I had envisioned. Over the course of several months, we managed to kill off a small herb garden and our flowers just wilted.
