I planted out 45 grafted plants finally on 5/11 and TSWV has struck again causing me to lose 11 plants so far. I replaced them all in the last week; but I don't think the plague is over yet because there are a few others that are suspiciously smaller than they should be so I am just waiting for further symptoms to show before replacing them.

After a couple of no-show years for TSWV, I have pulled two plants this year... one was looking really good and had a few unripe fruit on it.
Fortunately I had replacements for both....

Two main differences from the prior two years...
1. Had extra onions in the garden over the winter.. (thrip vector?)
2. Not enough yellow marigolds around to attract away the thrips....

Bill, I hope we're both done seeing this for the season!

Wisdom is knowing not to put one in a fruit salad.
