He loves me. This is his way of keeping me occupied, giving me something to do with my time during these long summer days, keeping off the streets and out of trouble (I don't know how to fix everything that happens to Little Red(neck) truck) (Yet).
All that to communicate that we have a tomato plantation this year. That's what I get for fussing about running out of tomatoes in January.
There is a little something that comes with tomato plants. In truth, there are a LOT of little somethings that come with tomato plants. Meet our Nemesis, TOMATO HORN WORMS!
Ugly little things, aren't they?
Every morning and every evening Mr. Marvelous walks out into the plantation and starts looking.
There are signs that you can look for to help you find them; they are well-camouflaged little buggers.
You look for droppings on lower leaves
You look for plants that are missing leaves (!)
You look for half-eaten tomatoes
Then you pluck the little nuisances off the plant and put them with the half-eaten tomatoes in an old coffee container.
Then you go have fun!
Turns out chickens are not just for eggs and meat!
Ha Ha, you evil Horn Worms; take that!!
