Scott Trimble in a field

The tomato hornworm didn’t stand a chance in Scott Trimble’s field.

As Trimble walked his field near Heyworth, out of the corner of his eye he spotted a roly-poly hornworm eating one of his tomato plants for breakfast. Trimble picked it up, showed it to a visiting reporter, and squashed it with his shoe.
