Disaster and mayhem at the Tomato Annex

This is not a picture of the Tomato Annex from May.  This is a picture from today, August 9, 2016.

My tomatoes have had a really rough time this year.  It was so cold this spring, and has continued to be cool at night all summer (last night, IN AUGUST, it was 39 degrees at my house), and the tomatoes have struggled.  The past couple weeks, we finally had a stretch of really warm weather with daytime temps in the 80s and 90s, and they started to take off despite the cool nights.  They had grown to over three feet tall, and were covered with flowers and itty bitty fruit. I was excited.

Last night, there were apparently demonic evil deer in the Tomato Annex yard.

I have never had them eat my tomatoes...other veggies, yes, but never the tomatoes -- that's actually really odd to me. Those darn deer -- they are coming over the garage roof...I've blocked off every other entry but can't block the way they come over the roof. If they ate the tomatoes, I'd hate to see what they did to the rest of our landscaping back there. sigh. sorry.
