Tomato Tragedy


It must be the blight.


Tomato plants look terrible.


I know I should just cut them down but I want some tomatoes!


Butternut squash is fine.


Peppers too.


The weight of the fruit is bending the stems.



And it's such nice sized too,


Here's my basket full for today.  I pick some of the tomatoes if they are just showing color because I don't know what will happen to them if I don't.

Yikes!!

 I said that this morning when I spotted the mousetrap.  We have traps in the garage but mostly catch mice with the season changes.  Never expected to catch this snake.  



Don't know what it was.  Thankfully it was good and dead.  Dan checked with a broom handle first.



I'm the one to empty the mousetraps but couldn't do it when it was a snake trap.  Dan did the tossing. Carcass will likely be gone by tomorrow with the scavengers we have around here.

Anyone recognize this one?

I know it was not a Ribbon Snake seen here.

Here's a link to Maryland snakes.  Maybe its Mole Kingsnake?
