we head on back from natchitoches on sunday and when we get home, the first thing jon does is go to check on the garden!

he calls me out to show me that the two tomatoes  (from the sioux and the arkansas traveler) i have been eying have finally ripened completely (!) and we both get drooly thinking of how good they will taste…

in the midst of picking them, jon notices that tops of two of our tomato plants have been deleaved!  oh, so not good…

he stops to have a minor heart attack and then goes on to see if he can find out what is eating these babies…

jasper and i move on to play with the dogs and bring the tomatoes in and it isn’t long before jon comes storming into the house with these:

and they are huge and fat with our plants!!  these evil bubs are called hornworms...  and they are ugh!

jon has sworn to go utterly hiroshima on these devils and i suspect that they will rue the day that they found our garden…

and by the way?  yeah, our tomatoes were divine!  i am forever sold on heirlooms and am about to be very spoiled when it comes to yummy tomatoes!!

i am ok with that…
