This morning I wanted to go tie up my tomatoes which were becoming a jungle with our blessed rain. I like working alone in the quiet of the garden. It allows me to pray and think and just be. Quiet moments are rare here. This morning I had joyful chatter. Three grands went with me to help. As they were walking cinder blocks and doing other fun things in the cool mud I discovered this.
It is a rather large tomato worm. Being the squeamish Granola I am I called all three kids over to show them. I was proud of oldest as he told me what it was. This is the second one this year already!
I brought it out from under the vines where they could examine it better. Yes, I touched it :)
So did they! Each one had to touch.
Grand daughter's touch was short and sweet, and she was done. .
The boys on the other hand were much more into checking it out more
On our way out of the garden I suggested she pick an onion for lunch. She was thrilled!
