A few days ago I noticed some of the lower leaves were missing on one of the tomato plants. At first I thought the chickens had been snacking on them.
That was until yesterday, when the top leaves were gone. Completely gone. I knew that a hornworm was responsible. So, the search was on, but to no avail. Mr. T. Hornworm was nowhere to be found.
Until 7 am this morning when I caught him eating the remaining side stalks of the very same plant. Of course, I had to snap a few pictures, and share because I know y’all are anxious to see a photo. Of course, I had to snip the stalk with Mr. Tomato Hornworm safely attached, still snacking. And of course, I had to see if the chickens wanted to have a snack.
When I left them, they were still taunting it and pecking at it. Because of his size, I don’t think they will eat the worm.
