We didn’t exactly invite them over for a backyard bash, but they were too cute to kick out.
These little caterpillars are called the Tomato Horn Worm and have made a home in my tomato plants. At least someone is enjoying the garden this year because we sure didn’t get a chance to.
As of last night we had 5 of them living in our tomato plant. If it wasn’t the end of gardening season I may be upset about these new found backyard friends, but since we’re heading into September, oh well. Eat till your hearts content my little green friends.
We (and by we I mean Jim) read that you have to rototiller the garden to destroy any pupae that may be there so we’ll be doing that at the end of the season. I am not welcoming them back next gardening season.
