Back to the garden

It’s an embarassment of riches. Half of the tomatoes in my garden are split and fall from the vine. They are attacked by slugs. But I still harvest grocery bags of tomatoes at a time.

I know that fuzzy bear caterpillars are supposed to be predictors of winter, but I haven’t seen any of them around. What I have been seeing is 6 legged spiders. 3 in the last 2 days.

Yes, I know, 6 legs == insect, 8 legs == arachnoid.

But these spiders had 4 legs on one side and 2 on the other.
Perhaps it’s a sign of the spiders’ encounter with a cat.
