Harvest! (and An Unkown Pest)

We have broccoli!

We cooked it up (steamed in water in the microwave for 6 minutes) for lunch with some leftover chicken w/broccoli.  So yes – we had chicken w/broccoli w/broccoli.

I have a potential issue with my tomato plants, which I’m counting on my reader’s vast experience to advise on:  there are slices on the tomato leaves that look like a mini-Wolverine slashed them with his claws.

I’m guessing they’re from some kind of worm???  The question is – big deal or not?  Should I spray them with Sevin? (note: I sprayed the broccoli and Brussels sprouts with Sevin last week, but it rained later that afternoon, and maybe I didn’t spray enough because I spent the next week picking big green cabbage worms (thanks RJS!) off the leaves.  I’m trying not to use pesticide where it’s not needed).  I looked on the tomatoes for the elusive camouflaged hornworm, but I didn’t see any.  So – does anyone recognize this damage?
