Camo Inch Worm

After bringing in my plants for the winter there was a inch worm explosion enjoying the heat of my house - devouring everything in their path. All of the inchies were a solid light green looming on my herbs, but this lone ranger (pictured below) made itself some camouflage colors to match the Ivy plant stripes. Very cool!


Cute, but a ferocious eater who had to be put outside...

Seriously, they swallowed up my comfrey plant overnight... i felt bad but i had to put them out in the cold.I figured it was unatural for them to be living like that this time of year anyway.

I have accidently eaten little guys like this on my organic produce and they taste like bitter grossness!
