Gary, outfitted for blackberry picking.
Rita's patio begonia.
This caterpillar was probably already green before it ate all of Rita's parsley. I believe it wants to be a black swallowtail butterfly when it grows up.
Norton grapes are doing well, except for the Japanese beetles. (Not shown, because I would not give them the satisfaction.)
Pears in the orchard.
Bugs in the blackberry patch. I believe these may be Red Milkweed Beetles (Tetraopes tetraophthalmus), of the Long-horned beetle family.
Blackberries in the field.
Bowl of blackberries freshly picked from the field.
Rita's famous blackberry tart. Simple and delicious!
