The Tomatoes? Not So Good.

We planted about 7 or 8 tomato plants in the spring, some of which were from the seeds from France. The tomatoes were looking good, and they were all over the plants.  It looked like a bumper crop this year.  But then just as the individual fruit became ripe, they were infested with bugs.  And if there were no bugs, there were these little brown craters on the surface of the fruit!  We did get some good ones out of both gardens, but not that many.  This is sad that so many have gone to waste.  I started reading about spraying for bugs, but it puts important insects like bees at risk.  What to do...
