George, I think I goofed. I've never seen a cutworm. Don't know
it's color. The green worm I was thinking about is really a
tomato horn worm -- which I think might be a caterpillar..? 
That's the one you don't want to have bite you while you are
plucking your 'maters. It's the very same color as the tomato
foliage, just to make life more difficult. 

I do know that people get cutworms up here, if they do not
place some sort of barrier around their plants. 

George, now I see that I have made yet another mistake. 
Tomato hornwom or tobacco hornworm? Those I have seen -- 
ugly, large, horned  brutes, and as I said before, the same
color as the stems they walk up.
