Something Appetizing, and Something Not
So I decided to make green chili cheeseburgers tonight. I think they turned out pretty good, and my husband liked them, so they passed the test. I think I need to change what condiments I use because I didn't really like mustard on it. Not bad for a first attempt. I'll try again another time.
I found my third cutworm on my tomatoes today. They are beautiful, but really gross. When the worker guy was at my house, I found a huge cutworm, about the size of a breakfast sausage. I yelled for my youngest son to come, but he wasn't around. The worker asked if he could help me. When I showed him the cutworm, I think it grossed him out. He said, "Let me see if I can find something to get it with." I could tell he really didn't want to touch it. My son came along and tried to pry it off the plant, but it had all of it's legs gripping the stem, so he couldn't without squishing it. And frankly, none of us could stomach squishing it. Just then it occurred to me that I could just break off the branch of the tomato plant and throw it in the leaf bin. The last two I found aren't as big, but just as gross. I'm not quite sure how to get rid of them, if you have any ideas, let me know.
