What Is It?

Found this guy while I was watering this morning. Looks just like a stick and moves like an inch worm. Click on photo for a larger view.

If you know what it is please let me know if I should set it free or not.

Sweet Potato Update

July 1st Sweet Potato Post # 3

The sweet potatoes were planted in the the garden the first week of June. Normally we would plant sweet potatoes in May but with the weather so unseasonally cool I opted to wait. June was still a bit too cool so the beds with the sweet potatoes were covered with plastic. The plastic was removed on June 14th and there was not much growth until just this past week with the warmer weather setting in. 

Below are photos of the nine plants I have planted in beds 2 and 4.
