The horn worms are manageable for me. With only 6 tomato plants each year I am able to keep them picked off. But the aphids are my nemesis! Oh, and the dang squash bugs! Grrrr! And I love squash and zucchini.

my tomatoes did not do well this year but my beans and squash did do you can your tomatoes.
:frow Good afternoon Donkeydew, Hope you're having a great day. Yes I can them and had hoped to put up a bunch this year. I wanted to can 12 quarts whole, 52 pints diced, 100 half pints of sauce.
But the ducks love them.
:frow Good afternoon Lisa, hope you're having a great day. My girls ran from them, but then again they had a month to grow (4" worms was not uncommon). Ironically, most of them were tobacco horn worms rather than tomato horn worms. My banana pepper plant is now grown back and has peppers growing (it was the first to lose all its leaves. I've recovered a couple of cherry tomato plants. But the rest are just dead sticks.

They are the same worm. Just called different things in different places. I only give them to large ducks after a chocking incident. My guys fight over them and pull them apart. Its really gross.
