This Is Why Gardens Are A Pain In the Ass

Double TroubleDouble Trouble I've been a homeowner for about 15 years now and it's taken a decade for me to forget why I decided to have a garden.  Sure I can tell everybody about why my tomatoes taste so much better than those from Costco. Yeah.... that's great and all.  Having just a few plants has provided a bounty of vegetables that has made me feel like a farmer, much closer to mother earth.  But, I say to hell with all that noise.    If I have to spend all this time with soil and fertilizer and pruning just to see a few Tomato Hornworms eat the shit out of everything when my back was turned, what's the point?   The only good that has come from it all is a great opportunity to shoot some macro shots of these beautiful creatures of destruction.  I swear to God, my wife and I thought we had rats eating the tomatoes because the bite marks looked like what we expected a rat would do (plus we saw them in the backyard eating bird seed).  Turns out we had about 4-5 of these worms eating everything in sight before I brought them inside for  photo shot.  Anyway.... here you go.
