Garden Harvest and Pests

I have to say, gardening is cool, but the pests are not!!! The other night, during an evening harvest, I came across this gross, HUGE, I-think-they-call-it tomato hornworm. Let me say...YUCK! I had nightmares the night I found it.

I guess everything really IS bigger in Texas!

This thing has chubby feet. (Check out those dirty fingernails, too!)
