The Enemy

Unfortunately this year, hail killed off many of the tomato plants early on, so I don't have any extra "sacrificial tomatoes" this year - thus, these moths were not destined to live - but instead, were destined to become - chicken food. It's the way of the world.

Of course, besides the eat and be eaten rule, there is the "Chickens will trample anything" rule. Thus, since the tomatoes in this raised bed are in with the most delectable zucchinis, there is wire fencing over the top of it. Otherwise, I'm sure the tomatoes would be trampled by worm-hunting chickies and the zucchini plants would be eaten to the ground.
