I swore off growing tomatoes a couple of years ago. We just don't get the right light and the critters beat me down. Between the stink bugs and the squirrels, we could never get a good tomato crop worth all the water and effort.
This year, I decided to try something a little different: tomatillos. They've been flowering for a while, and have just started to form these beautiful little papery lanterns, which I assume will begin to fill with the green fruit over the next months.
I figure that the husk will protect the fruits from the stink bugs. Squirrels? I don't have much faith in keeping them away, but maybe I'll be happily surprised and making tomatillo salsa in the future.
