Not my 'maters

Wooo Friends...

While CM was outside checking the vegetable garden with Dad, they found something getting dangerously close to the tomato plants! Dad and CM came running back in the house and told Mom to get the camera to take a photo. Wanna know what it is? Let's take a photo look...

It is a horn worm and they do bad things to our 'maters. See how big it is? I mean, it was well over 3 or 4 inches. It was munching on the gardenia bush. So, it had not made it's way to the 'maters. But WOW it was big. Apparently they spit when they are threatened. So as Dad had to move it to a new home, it spit on him. Ewwwww.

We are off to the University of Georgia tomorrow for CM's CERF exam. GO DAWGS!!!!! I am not sure she knows what it means because she has been running about the house excited because she thinks she is going surfing. Hummmm....

Happy Thursday!

Good luck on your surfing test, CM. I'm sure you'll ace it.

I guess you're going to have to set up a worm patrol around the 'maters. Big, fat, juicy worms might be tasty.

That is the biggest ugliest worm I have ever seen. I make my dad deal with things like that.

Good luck for your CERF exam CM!

That 'mato worm looks like something that crazy "Bizarre Foods" biped on TV would find lip-smacking good! We personally don't care for food that spits at us.

Woos & a-roos,
