The Bees Knees | Little Garden Helper

My friend Kate took several pictures recently when we had a little playdate with Cherub.  One of the photos that struck me was this one of a bee with full knees.  I hope to welcome many of these little pollinators to my garden plants soon.  We need them.

Hungry Caterpillar

In putting all the garden to bed for the fall, we pulled up the last of the tomato and pepper plants.  We found this “little” guy on one of the pepper plants.  He had pretty much cleaned off most all the leaves.  Cherub was fascinated and who could blame her.  It reminded us of the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland.  This is either a tobacco hornworm or a tomato hornworm.  I’m leaning toward a tobacco hornworm.  But whatever it is, it doesn’t sting or bite.  We tossed it in the compost with the rest of pulled up pepper plants after our photo shoot.
