Aiiieee! The dreaded tomato hornworm. This one was as big and long as my index finger.
It's difficult to bring myself to touch these little monsters. Even though I know they won't do anything, I always imagine they are going to roar like a little mini T-Rex and rear back to bite or sting me when I pluck them off my plants.
They have the most incredibly soft, marshmallow-y yucky skin feel. Like your fingers are going to go right through them and squirt bright-green goo all over yourself.
Shudder. I got the man of the house to use a stick to scrape this one off.
