Sure enough, in the cool (80°) morning air, I found 3 LARGE (4″) wormies happily munching away. I dispatched them. They will never be able to drop to the ground, burrow in, pupate or become Sphinx Moths.
Are there more out there? I’m sure of it. We found 2 little baby ones the other evening, so a new batch of eggs had hatched.
We ARE going to eat tomatoes this year whether these critters like it or not!
I did freeze 2 qt bags of diced tomatoes and a qt bag of sliced banana peppers. I love having those bags in the freezer to yank out when I want to make stews or salsa….still fresh from the garden taste and all.
