And what they don’t like basil? But seriously that sucks.

“Dear PoPville,

I suppose we shouldn’t be too surprised but one of our tomato plants was stolen from our garden bed in the front of our house on Marion st in Shaw. Roots and all – it was just gone when we got back home Sunday evening.

I’m struggling to figure out what the point of stealing it could possibly be. The plant wasn’t yet flowering – it’ll take another 30 days or so until tomatoes are even produced so if the thief wants to get anything out of it it will take some serious TLC. You could also buy a plant for $3 around the corner at Old City Farm. Or – they could actually just go buy tomatoes at Giant!

Does anyone have any tips on how to protect the rest of my garden from this happening again?”
