Worms in my tomatoes?!
As many of you may know, I have gven over much of my backyard to my garden this summer and have been happily pulling cukes, herbs and zucchini out of my garden for a month now. Just recently, my tomatoes started popping out-I have about 8 plants, all different kinds, from Roma to beefsteak.
Imagine my horror, when I was pruning the plants this morning and found a huge green worm resting on one half eaten tomato. After further investigation, I found that many of my tomatoes had been eaten alive! I am so depressed because this destruction seems to have happened rather quickly and I am not sure how to stop it without using some kind of chemical on my tomatoes.
Has anyone else experienced these tomato worms???
