I agree, it's a pretty quiet list. Basically, I'm a lurker, but now I have a
need to know question.

Every year I put netting over my tomatos to defend against crows and
squirrels. This year I put a new net and discovered that it has such a fine
mesh that a honey bee could barely get through it.

So my question ... are tomatos self fertile or do they need insect
