|My makeshift bird shield to ripen tomatoes on the plant instead of picking early|
As if it weren’t bad enough that my tomatoes are suffering from early blight, all the ripe ones have been sampled by the local birds. I don’t want to pick them early. They taste so much better when they’re ripened fully on the vine!
Here’s to hoping my bird shield (a plastic fruit container like berries usually come in) keeps the birds away without trapping moisture/heat or blocking sun and that my tomato plant recovers enough from early blight to produce more deliciousness. Now I just need to buy some more berries or pre-cut fruit because I only had one container!
