I must confess, I’ve let the weeds get away from me. I took a couple of weekends off, and now the the beds — especially the onion and kale bed — are overgrown with crab grass, clover, and other unwelcome additions. I found one unexpected visitor, however, that was quite exciting.
Also known as a “writing spider” these black-and-yellow arachnids are a good sign in the garden: they eat other bugs and are not dangerous to humans. I left that little patch completely undisturbed, and thanked the little dude for letting me take so many pictures.
