Of Tobacco Worms
Spending some time at a friends house the other day, she gave me the tour of the landscaping and gardens she and her husband have been working on for the last few years. the vegetable garden (beautiful!), the hops plants (tall!) and the moonflower plot (infected!). Apparently, their moonflowers have been infected with tobacco worms. Moonflowers are related to Nicotiana and Tomatoes, all of which are susceptible to Tomato worms and tobacco worms. I learned more than I ever wanted to about tobacco worms and the beautiful moths they grow up to be.
Moonflowers. greenhouses. worms. giant beautiful moths.
All I could think of was China Mieville’s Perdido Street Station. I’ll never be able to think of tomato worms the same way again.
damn you New Weird for infecting nearly day of my life!
