You grow your own black cherry tomatoes from seed?

Incidentally, my litter-composting days are over since I moved.

I now have a cute white-tailed yard bunny that was decapitating my pepper

houseplants to deter the cat from chewing the leaves).   I also tried the
same spray on the fragrant yellow roses, which are irresistible to Japanese
beetles.  Seems to worth in both applications.
