They grow up so fast

Hornworms have been the focus of recent days (we are working in the tomatoes a lot lately to prep them for to ripen!). 
I have a love-hate relationship with these squirmy, green garden critters. They are very beautiful but oh-so-destructive. 

Thought I do find them a bit charming, at least I'm not raising them... I fear revealing that one of my incredible volunteers is actually keeping a couple alive at home, feeding them tomato leaves and everything! Yikes, I can't imagine helping the critters grow into adulthood... We've been feeding them to the pigs!
