I’ve started finding some little friends in my garden.
Actually this first guy is quite a large little friend. He has been hanging out in my lettuce leaves for about a week now. He greets me every morning when I go out to pick our greens for the day. I’m already dreading the day that I have to pull up all the remaining lettuce and he looses his happy little home. I can only hope that when that day comes the other plants in the adjacent beds have become large enough to offer him a welcoming new home.
I’m not actually sure what this next little guy is. I know when we were kids we called them inch worms. Where did he come from and what will he become. I’m assuming this is just a middle stage of his development. As cute as he is I have had to give up a portion of my basil and spinach to his hungry little belly. Not ideal but he and his buddies aren’t so numerous as to be a problem…yet. I’m going to look into organic and ethical ways to deter these little guys from eliminating my basil.
