Solanum lycopersicum


This is one of the tomato plants in the garden and stands at almost 4 feet tall and has some small green tomatoes on it and some flowers.


The tomato plant is in our school garden and gets full sun.


This is the plant a 4th grade group at John G chose for their observations (The Blue Spiders). Here are their questions based on their observations: 1. How are pest insects kept away from tomatoes? 2. Why do lady bugs come to tomato plants?

When you pull a leaf off the tomato plant, what do you smell? How does that leaf feel to your fingers? If you look closely at the stem of the tomato plant, what do you see? Now you tell me, how do tomato plants keep pests away?

What do ladybugs eat? Why do the ladybugs come to the garden? To eat of course! Tomato plants are always getting picked on by all kinds of pests, and lady bugs come looking for those pests and eat them! So do you think ladybugs are good for a garden or are they harmful?
