Game Time

How many hornworms are about to die a slow, painful death by starvation and heat exhaustion in the empty lot behind our backyard?

I'll give you a hint.  It's more than one.

The first person to guess the number correctly gets to take home our next larvae-infested hornworm.  Assuming you come to our house and take it off the branch yourself, of course.  (Don't understand why this is such a great prize?  Check it out here.)

An answer diagram will be available at a later date.

Get your guesses in now, before the larvae-infested hornworm is gone. This great prize won't last long.


  1. aw man, it's almost dinnertime over here...not anymore. ew

  2. 18? if i'm right you can keep the prize :)

    you should read "ends of the earth" by tim downs (i think that's the right title). I think you'll like it, given your current predicament!

  3. I'm getting 19? Maybe if I had plants for real I'd take it.

  4. Oh, gross. I think there's 17, but I don't want the prize! Ew, ew, ew.
