enemies amongst my plants

look what i found today. not one but two!

the tobacco hornworm. apparently they like eating tomatoes. great. a new epic battle begins. i feel bad wanting to kill these, but maybe not. that sucker looks like predator.

peek-a-boo, i found you!

so i was trimming my squash and cucumber plant back yesterday and i found a little surprise. neither plant has been successful this summer, and if anyone who reads this recalls from an earlier post, i had pretty much given up on the cucs.

there was still a strong vine from the cucumber plant crawling amongst all my tomatoes and smothering the squash blossoms, but it would just produce flowers and hang out there all ornamental like.

so i decided to trim the heck out of it all. and then there he was. the lone cucumber.

and its huge!!!

some neighbors were unloading groceries and they saw me holding the cuc up for this picture and were all like, "that's not your's, is it?" and i'm all like "mmmhmmm, you betcha! it was hiding from me all summer!"

what do i make with it???

Found these gems close to 6th and Reed.
Good re-purposing. It'd be cooler if they were herbs and veggies though.
