Garden Life - Update

Yeah, so just as I was all happy about the critters in my garden I chanced to walk out back tonight and find this fat little guy munching away at one of the tomato plants.

We took a look around and couldn't find any more Tomato Worms but damn, apparently eating half my tomato plant's leaves creates one huge caterpillar.

Fortunately it left our first ripe giant tomato alone! Time to be on the lookout though. Apparently it's a "Tobacco Horn Worm" according to The Biologist. Also, you can get parasitic wasps to eat them. Nature is horrible.

I know what this one is thinking though.

"Sweet Jesus it does not fear the eye-spots!"
