Little Green Monsters

It only took one glance at my precious tomato plants to see the horrible indignity they had been done... Their leaves were gone and in their place were the squirmy little buggers known as green caterpillars.



Oh this was war! My plants had just begun rippening their massive crop. The green caterpillars were the size of fingers! They chirped at me (no kidding) as I scooped them up with the kids handy bug catching gear, each one seeming larger than the last.

I lost count at five of the little buggers now fighting for space in the tiny bug catching kit Kyle had gotten for his birthday.

All I ask is, "Was it worth it little buggers to single handedly destroy my tomato plants in one night?"

Anyone up for an episode game of Survivor and want to eat these things? (Gross!!) They are freshly filled with tomato leaves... So kidding!

Uck! Those worms creep me out-had some on our plants earlier this year. Hope you got them all off!

I think so. :) We kept finding them throughout the day. I was just shocked at how large they were!
