Holy man, I really don't know. I've never seen droppings or casings or whatever those are like that before. no catapillars or anything creepings around?
are you organic? maybe you can try some cayenne spray?

Well, it'll make the plant taste bad to whatever is eating it. Instead of cayenne pepper, get that yellow hot sauce at your super market. My friend is Carribean and he uses it with food, that shit is strong.

Mix it with water and test the strength by tasting it.
Put it in a spray bottle
and spray your plants

COuld be tomato worms, big old catapillars with a horn on their ass. One of the nice things about tomato plants is that animals don't like to chew them up.

Tomato Worms are probably the cause. hard to see cause they are the same damn shade of green as the plant. they tend to hang out under the leaves. they make good fish bait though.

Description Caterpillar, 3-4" (75-102 mm), is pale or dark green with a black horn at rear, V-shaped white mark at side of each segment.

Life Cycle Caterpillars feed on foliage of plants in the nightshade family, such as tomato and tobacco.

Flight Summer-fall.

Habitat Open areas, particularly those under cultivation.

Range Eastern half of the United States and southeastern Canada.

Discussion The caterpillars are seen much more frequently than adult moths. They feed mostly at night and later pupate in unlined cells in the soil. Although they are called tomato worms or hornworms, they also attack the foliage of potatoes, eggplants, green peppers, and various weeds. Persistent rumors that caterpillars can "sting" with their horns are totally false. These moths are known to southern tobacco-growing states as "tobacco flies."

Take some tobacco and mix it with water, spray on the leafs. There's a formula on this somewhere on the net, just go on google.
