Son Of A BITCH!
Sorry. I have pretty much eschewed such language on the blog but I'm so pissed! I found ten tomato horn worms on my two plants today. Ten! Five per plant! Where in the ever-loving blue heaven did these little SOBs come from? Needless to say I tore each one apart before checking further on the plants. And I probably wouldn't have found them for another couple of days were I not out planting the last of the pepper sprouts into the place of the one pepper plant I wounded too deeply in planting.
That and seeing what I thought was a wasp (crunch!) and now realize was probably one of those that lays its eggs in the horn worm. Sorry wasp. I thank you for the work you do but please get it done a little faster.
