Harvesting in the garden……

Sometime you gotta improvise when you don’t have a proper drying rack
3 kinds of garlic: Chesnok Red, Music, Belarus Purple Stripe
Trouble in the vegetable garden….
You know you’re in trouble when a bunch of your tomato branches have been stripped of leaves! Time to start looking for….
….a tomato hornworm! These huge (4-5 inch) green caterpillar-like creatures have massive appetites and can do a lot of damage! They are very hard to spot and it can take quite some time to find them. Can you see it?
Look at its massive mouth!
Josh spotted a tiny one, which was great because it hadn’t had much time to consume our plants!
Second batch of house sparrows…
It’s so cute to hear their little cheeps as I walk by the birdhouse!
