I did what any sane gardener would do! I bellowed for The Boy to bring me a bowl toot sweet and I picked every single ripe or near ripe tomato on the bushes and brought them inside to the safety of my kitchen...where I was going to eat them.
Of course woman cannot live on tomatoes alone...so I added some rocket and chives from the balcony and topped it up with some store bought cucumber and capsicum.
And watching all this caterpillar induced hysteria is Tabby - one of furry house guests whom we had been minding (along with her two siblings) for Cat Protection Society. We couldn't get within a foot of her whilst she stayed here but she would happily watch all the crazing goings-on on the balcony from the safety of her window seat.
