We had a pretty decent storm here about a week ago, with a good bit of hail. My beautiful squash leaves have been really beat up. Look at all those holes in the leaves – all from being pelted by the hail!
We had some praying mantis babies hatch somewhere nearby, and several of them have taken up residence in the garden. They’re finally big enough to really be tackling some of the regular garden pests, and I found this one today busy eating a cucumber beetle. Go, baby, go!
