Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...well that's not actually funny, because on Monday a Great White took out a holiday maker at our favourite beach...so maybe it is better to say, just when you thought it was all going well in our garden....
Overnight these little beasties appeared on my tomato plants. Red Spider Mite!
And after the 34 deg C yesterday my top tomatoes have sunburn.
The tomatoes that are in the shade of the plant's leaves are doing well, larger than my palm and without blemish.
So what's the solution for red spider mite...they tell me to make a garlic spray. Basic instructions are to soak 5 cloves of garlic in boiling water and when cooled add a dob of dishwashing liquid (thats the fixitive for the spray) and spray the leaves in the evening. I also went and cut off the leaves that were infected.
Hope it works!
