I noticed over the winter my backyard trumpet plant started getting these black ball/egg-like things and I have no clue what they could be. In the fall I found 1 small green caterpillar or inch worm but it was just eating the leaves. Any ideas what this could be?

What you see is excrement from either an insect or a caterpillar. It's probably from a caterpillar called a leaf roller caterpillar.
