    1. Izzy,

      I hate them myself. Kind of reminds you of this little song, "the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out..........." I can't remember the rest, LOL.....

  3. I had that same worm in my tomatoes. He ruined most of them.
    I've never heard of tomatillos before.

    1. Kimberly,

      When you see these worms you have to kill them immediately or they will take over your garden. Tomatillo's are usually found in the mid west. It's a Mexican husk tomato used in salsa. It's green looks like a small tomato with a paper type husk on it. There part of the gooseberry family.

    1. Mike,

      I sound like an old fart, lol.......
      Thanks, I actually had a typed post to go with the videos. Had computer problems, lost the typed post, and just let the videos go. We had to rebuild our computer back to factory specs. Then we upgraded to Windows 10, hate Windows 8.

  5. Thanks for the videos. Almost all the fruit on our wild fruit trees get stung each year. If we could get to them when blooming we might have a chance at spraying them with soapy water which is supposed to help. Can't wait to hear about the salsa!

    1. DFW,

      I did make the salsa verde and it turned out really good surprisingly.
      Hubby and I love Mexican food.

      The secret is getting to the plants early, but sometimes doing that can be a problem too.

    1. JUGM,

      Yes, those worms were gross.....totally gross!!!! I had one try to climb on my finger, and I screamed......then flung him across my patio. Those big nasty green ones on the tomatoes usually horn worms, and their determined to stay on the plant. I don't like touching them, I use a pair of scissors to pull those babies off.

      Thanks, I glad you liked my crazy videos. I had a post but the computer decided to eat it.

      Much love to you and yours,
      Sandy

  8. This is great. I think I may have mowed some of Marcy's in a zeal to clear the farm.

    Good to hear your voice.

    Have a blessed week.

  9. Nice vids. We don't have very good luck with Tomitillos here so I basically stopped growing them. They do give an extra added zing to the salsa Mrs. PP makes though.

    1. PP,

      Thanks!!! This was the first time planting them. I actually made salsa verde (green tomatillo salsa). I bet Mrs. PP makes one heck of a great salsa!!!

    1. Harry,

      If you like Mexican food, you should try salsa verde made from tomatillo's.
      Yes, they are strange looking!
