I set my tomatoes out a little over a week ago. Some already had flower
clusters. The neighbor sprayed the fence row a few days later with Round-Up
and now our tomatoe's new growth is all distorted from the drift. Will they
recover and produce fruit or will they remained deformed and not bear?
Please, does anyone know? Should I replace them or will they recover?
They will probably not recover. How crappy!
At least cut off any distorted growth, try washing the plant off. But
don't hold your breath, I'm sorry. Plus, I don't think you want to
eat anything that plant produces now....
Once my ex-husband got crazy with the weed n' feed, sprayed all the
plants in the yard. It was not pretty. I went on a spree at my
favorite nursery, but it didn't make up for losing my babies.
Go get some crazy fun heirlooms or something. Maybe that will take the
sting off your loss.
Yes. The last owners of their lot let weeds and vines grow all over the
fence and side of their yard. They're cleaning up the property which is
good. They claim they saw rats. I've seen no rats but it's possible. Had I
known they were going to spray with weed killer I would have covered the
plants with tarp.
No, our season lasts until late October so there is time yet.
Yes, they will let me know next time so I can cover the garden. I also ask
them to wait until a very calm day to spray. They understand. I talk to her
this morning. I know they need to clean out that side of their yard of weeds
and other wild vegetation. They didn't know about drift.
