Worms on tomato plants
"I recently planted one of the upside down tomato plants planted in a container and the plant grows from the bottom. This morning I looked and the plant had some brown leaves. I broke off the leaves, which were curled, and when I opened the leaf there was a worm and hundreds of little black eggs inside the curled leaf. The worm was tan in color. How do I rid my tomato plant of these worms. Thank you, Kathleen Rousseau"

"Sounds like you might have climbing cutworms. They live in the soil but hide during the day in rolled up leaves, etc. They usually come out at night, so the best (and most garden-friendly) control is to go out at night with a flashlight and hand pick them.

Sounds like you have a good start, though. By removing and destroying the leaves where they hide, you're getting the cutworms too.
