Hornworm - Day 332

This is really disgusting.  First, the hornworm itself is really impressively cool - its body looks like it is braided.  The white spots are eggs that a wasp laid on the hornworm.  The eggs will hatch and the babies will eat the hornworm and any more that are around.  So, we didn't kill the poor worm - we left it to die a much more gruesome death.  Take that as a lesson - don't screw with our tomatoes!
