A lovely garden spider has made her home in our garden, specifically in my bed by the tomato plants. She started out the size of the end of my pinkie finger, and now, I estimate she’s grown at least five times her size.
Garden spiders visited our last garden, mainly our raspberry bushes. You know what you’re looking at by the bright yellow on the body, and the web has a vertical zig-zag pattern right down the center.
This lady is keeping some pests away from our tomatoes and enjoying it! Isn’t she cool?!
Other than her, nothing else has joined our gardens: no praying mantis, and thankfully, no horn-worms this year!
