I couldn’t eat another bite…

Apparently a Tobacco Hornworm has found Evelyn’s tomato plants! This thing was about 2-3 inches long! I think they are fascinating but sure can eat some foliage. Evelyn’s philosophy is plant extra so even the Hornworms get something to eat. She is a kind and lovely individual. The worm will turn into a moth eventually. Even though they eat tomatoes, they differ from Tomato Hornworms by the markings on their sides.

  1. I have BT powder that will put the hurt on them. Let me know if you want to borrow it.

  2. If you throw them in the air sometimes a robin will swoop down and catch it midair. Robins have to eat too, you know!

  3. Didn’t know they were called tobacco worms. As kids growing up in New Hampshire me and my brothers always called them tomato worms because they always found our tomato plants.
