I'm gonna try this without a pic cuz i lost my cables.. its brown, almost the length of my hand and has small yellow V's on both sides of the body, it has no hair or spines or anything that stands out except the yellow V's. I am looking for my cable so hopefully i can show you a pic of it, just thought i'd try before i lose it in the plant. BTW it was on a tomato plant if that helps.

UGH, i went to look for it and could not find it. Well i will be taking the tomato plants out next weekend anyhow. Its about finished its cycle anyhow. Is it too late to plant something else there? I'm in zone 6b i think.

Thanks for the help, BTW i did not see the horn till after i posted the pic.Then when i saw it i just hoped i was wrong.

Laydera, when you remove your tomato's, why not try spinach seeds ?
Spinach will germinate and grow at 75 degrees and under.
My tomato's just wont quit this year, here it is Oct and still buds on my plants, also loaded with green tomato's.
I've pulled up some plants 3 feet away from the tomato's and found heavy roots coming from that tomato plant.
This MM is quite the growing medium...

Laydera, is that tomato from your garden?  That is such a nice tomato letting you know how good you took care of it!
