Can you see it?

Can you see it? We have these terrible HUGE caterpillars all over the garden. Oh well, it is about time to pull it all up anyway. I'd like to plant a fall/winter garden with greens and spinach, but I have so many bugs in this little garden plot, I'm not sure it would be very successful. These caterpillars are tomato hornworms, by the way. If they turned into a decent butterfly or something I would keep them for a science project, but they bore underground and come out a pretty nasty looking moth, so I think we are going to pull 'em off and smash 'em. Gross. Good project for the kids.

Maybe you can teach Abby to eat them.
