Ah - HA. Gotcha!

Maybe I shouldn't be quite so smug. But I am relieved.

The BT worked and I am seeing the demise of the tomato hornworms. Normally, I let caterpillars eat whatever they like - Mountain Laurel leaves or dill or parsley -- heck I even plant the parsley for them.

But tomatoes -- uh-uh. THAT is a different story. Especially those I grew from seed for the first time. No way Baby.

And especially now when they are full of big, fat tomatoes just ready to ripen and grace our table with delicious fruit.

Sometimes you're the dog and sometimes you're the fire hydrant ... I'm the big dog today!
