Just cleaning up my Veg plot ready to plant 2nd crop of Tomatoes.
Yes ..... 2nd crop ..... this is Southern California (Zone 9b) after all.
Came across some baby Praying Mantis, less than 1/4 " long, only spotted them because they scuttled across the bed I was working on.
I hope they thrive and help me control the aphid population.
