horn worm on tomato

{{G R O S S }} Just stopped an 8-pound* tomato hornworm in my garden, on my cherry tomato plant.  Though I was in an annual war at our last house, I had only found a couple here in 2008 prior to now…*sniff.  My lovely tomato plants have been targeted by the enemy.

I am not even going to attempt to tell you how I really feel.

*8 pounds may or may not have been an exageration.  But it would have been 8 pounds if we hadn’t spotted it and beat it to bits with a shovel – as it bled MY tomato leaves onto the ground.
