This is what I found on it:
(OKAY. That is ACTUAL SIZE. I measured my screen. FUGGIN' GROOOSSSSS.)
That is a tomato hornworm. They are squirmy, thick bodied, and I did the Ooogie Shiver dance (while wearing my leather rose-pruning gloves) each time I YANKED one off. I had to YANK. They are disgusting and I hate them. That is a deck of playing cards, and they were all as long as that. EWWWW. Thicker than my thumb. EWWWWWWW!!
I would like to state that there were FIFTEEN of them. I collected seeds yesterday, and checked the plant. There were no tomato hornworms. Almost the ENTIRE plant has been defoliated. (No leaves.) I have four daturas. FOUR. They ate them all.
The cats are no longer outside. They scare the birds away. Currently mocking birds are having a feast in my driveway. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
In other news, I am writing AU RPS with VK and William "Peter, High Kiing of Narnia" Somebody Hot Lips. Clearly this is a plague of locusts being visited on me. Don't make me bust out the DDT. DON'T. MAKE. ME.
