Went out this AM before work and harvested from the front lawn bed (which has full sun and is doing the best). It currently has 3 tomato plants, 2 bell pepper plants, two parsley plants, a row of beans which were planted late and may or may not produce anything, and some onions that are sprouting on their own. I harvested 8 peppers from full size to very large and 10 tomatoes, from saladette to 8 oz, nearly ripe to dead ripe. Some of the peppers instead of having 4 lobes have 8, shaped kind of like those pleated tomatoes we see pictures of. Peppers hadn't started turning color yet, but I figured I might as well pick them, free up some energy for the plants to keep producing.
So things I noticed - what is it that just eats the skin off of tomatoes? I've seen 2 - 3 of them now (including one more today) that just look like a significant portion of the tomato was peeled. In the peeled area, all the seeds and gel are showing, but dried out from being exposed. Doesn't look like the kind of holes that hornworms make or the kind of scars that stinkbugs leave.
I found another parasitized hornworm. I've actually now seen a few more hornworms than usual, but since every one of them has been covered in white coccoons, I'm not worrying about it. The braconid wasps have to have a host for their larvae, so if I could get rid of every hornworm, the braconids would probably go elsewhere too. But this one had a full sized yellow jacket type wasp on it. The wasp spent a significant amount of time there, but I couldn't tell what it was doing. The coccoons were already hollow and empty, so it couldn't be eating those. Maybe sucking out the rest of the caterpillar from the skin? Laying eggs?
