Today in the garden

I found this little beauty busily eating away on my parsley plant. No matter, there is plenty to share.

I just noticed the spider on its web beneath the caterpillar. EEK!

I hope the roses will last a while longer. They seem to do best in spring and fall, when there are no beetles around to torment them.

The red long beans are still producing, although very sparsely. It's just too cold now. Maybe in another three weeks or so, the swiss chard will be ready. The plants are about an inch tall right now and are already showing how colorful they will be when ready to harvest.
