    Ya know, if your really careful and transplant them into a big container (a half whiskey barrel at least) I don't see any reason that you couldn't keep them alive for the rest of the season. (Longer if you bring them inside when its cold) I would try digging a couple of feet around the plants and see if I encounter any of there root systems. If they haven't spread that far yet keep digging in till you find the main bulk and handle them carefully as you transplant them to the chosen container. At least I think that should work fine…

    watch out! Those ants are farming those aphids for their honeydew and protecting them from other insects. If you plan to be rid of Aphids get rid of those ants first!

    That is a big shiny tomato! What do you think of the more exotic kinds like green zebra or hilbilly? are they worth growing or do they just look pretty not taste pretty?

    My neighbor used some ladybugs in a greenhouse room that was attached to her house. She used some row cover to keep them on her plants and not in her house and only a few escaped. I'll ask her some more questions and if she would do it again or not.
