Hungry hungry caterpillars

Holes in the tomatoes

 

Despite the tomato plants looking rather *dead* the fruits are still ripening.  (For some reason this plant produced well and then decided to curl up almost die…  The other plants are looking abit hungry so – Note to self fertilize garden!)   Anyway the crops were going well until  a hungry hungry caterpillar decided to eat its way through most of my crop!

A big guilty grub

Got to love Tony’s grubby hands he permantly has greasey black hands… even after a shower!

Remedy to deal with above wreaking party.  Feed them to the chooks!  I also have cut down the plant in the first photo, it was all but dead and the caterpillar ate holes through all of the fruit on the bushes. 

Total fruit lost – 4kg
