Tomato hornworms

We spent yesterday afternoon picking tomato hornworms out of our garden. They attack all members of solanaceae, so they weren’t just on the tomatoes… they were on the peppers and eggplant too. Grrrr. Literally overnight, they had stripped about half the leaves off of our tomato patch.

In the end, we picked all the tomatoes that were even half-ripe, to prevent further worm damage.

No… I didn’t take any pictures of the hornworms. Every time I saw one, I was too busy screaming and dancing around begging Sparks to get rid of it. I have some nice pictures of tomatoes, though.
