The End Is Near

Well, it's only 10 days until the average first frost date here in Missouri.  I've looked at the 10-day weather forecast, and it is looking like it may come a little sooner than that.  I have lots of little green half-grown tomatoes that I was really hoping to harvest, but this cool weather has been slowing the growth by a lot.  Since they are in containers, I'm thinking of bringing them in and putting them under a grow light to see if I can harvest some tomatoes this winter!  That would be fun.  I guess it's worth a try since there is really nothing to lose.

When I was inspecting my tomatoes this morning, I came upon this little guy.  I've never seen one before, but I'm assuming this is a tomato hornworm.  He's kind of cute, actually.

What did you do with him? I don't know if I could squash something that big. Maybe I'd flush him down the toilet or drive him to a remote area. :)

Yeah, I definitely couldn't squish him. I actually walked down the road a little ways and then threw him into the woods. I don't think he can find his way back that far.
