Me: Why I hardly know sir. I've changed so much since this morning, you see...
Caterpillar: No, I do not C. Explain yourself!
Okay, maybe it wasn't blue, puffing on a hookah and talking to me, but it was freaky!
This, was merrily munching away on my tomato plant. ~
It was 4" long! Like any good blogger, I grabbed my camera and started snapping, even though my shuddering made it hard to hold still.
I wasn't touching that thing, so I snapped the hole branch off. ~
The minute it lifted it's head and looked at me, I knew it would ask me all kinds of crazy questions and start yelling, so I threw the whole thing away!
A little Google effort and I find out this is a Tomato Hornworm and it will devastate your tomato crop in no time. It will also blow smoke in your face and act verrrry mean!
I found a blog with some great info on dealing with this thing, Tammy's Recipes. You might want to pay her a visit if you spot any in your garden.
Have a day where nothing creeps you out!
