caterpillars

Our neighbor came to the door a while back to drop something off, and informed us that we had a friend on our cherry tomato plant by the front door.

Turns out we had 3 friends.

I thought our plant was almost through for the season, so I let them enjoy it.  Turns out, it probably would have lasted much longer if I’d evicted them, but they were fun to watch.

Fun fact: they would only eat half of each tomato and then move on.  Weird.

They were certainly fat and happy when they left.  And they did leave – I’m hoping they went on to become beautiful moths somewhere, so all those leaves and tomatoes weren’t eaten in vain. 🙂
