I have been trying to get my garden in order. There’s not much planted, but I’d still like something to harvest. I have been watering the beans each evening.
It seems to be paying off since I am getting lots of blossoms.
I weeded the tomatoes yesterday.
Look what I found. It’s a tomato hornworm.
I don’t have much use for them. They’re okay for pictures and all, but I am still not a fan of them.
They get large, and they they do that is by eating lovely tomato plants.
I don’t want my tomato plants eaten because I want the tomatoes on it to turn red and have lots more grow and get ripe.
How do I deal with those pesky tomato hornworms? (Sorry for the photo quality. I forgot to switch from the sedentary macro setting to the action setting before entering the pen.)
It certainly makes the chickens happy! They go into a kind of frenzied fight over the thing.
Sorry to say, but yes, the hornworm was killed.
Okay, I’m not really sorry, and the chicken appreciated the snack. They only wish I had brought more of them with me.
