Plant Murderer

So in the car my husband was asking about the heavily powdered plants. I admitted to dusting them with diatomaceous earth after finding a few bugs. Then he gave me a raised eyebrow, "A few bugs. And you completely covered them in powder?"

I have to admit a few of the tomatoes were looking a wee bit sad, so sad that they were laying down. Then he started whispering, "Murderer. It's planticide. They're not afraid of the bugs, they're more afraid of you."

So the whole drive home I was biting my lip with worry. Once home, I misted them with water. Thank goodness they are all pretty much find, a couple are still bent over but one of those is still probably traumatized from being dropped this morning.
