Hi from Mallorca Spain.

I´m very new to home gardening and am trying to grow veg, so far,
not very successfully apart from the tomato plants. We have a wonderful large,
flavorful tomato called a Raf which I normally buy from our local market
and rather than throw away any that are beginning to go off, I have put them in a pot of earth and they have miraculously grown and are beginning to produce - the problem is that something is boring small
holes into all the tomatoes while they are small and green. There appear to be caterpillar droppings but no caterpillars? Does anyone have any idea what this might be and how to cure it?

Try checking under the leaves and on the stems (which you may have already done). If you don't find any, go out at night time with a flashlight and check the soil, under the leaves and on top, and the stems. You may be surprised what you find! Good luck!

Most tomato worms are the color and or texture of the tomato stem, they are very hard to see. BT is used over here, but, don't know what you have over there to use. Picking them off is best, if you can find them. Are the worms/catapillars hiding inside of the green tomatoes during the day? Just an idea.

Welcome to the forum. Are you interested in trying the method outlined in the book, ALL NEW SQUAREFOOT GARDENING that is the manual for the method used and supported by members of this forum. It is a great read and a method modified for use all over the world. We have members all over Europe and a European regional sub forum.

We try in the best way we can to encourage all gardeners.

By the way, BT is our shorthand for bacillus thuringiensis, an organic pestacide for control of worms.
