In the Garden

The caterpillars are back. Last year they ate every bit of my parsley (actually I let them) ~ I'm not sure I'll be as nice this year.






Riley enjoyed the sun today in the tomato patch.

I have noticed my cilantro disappearing. I'm wondering now if the caterpillars like it too.
That is such a cute picture of Riley in the tomato patch. Your tomatoes look yummy.

my dog sits outside the garden gate and watches us inside. he dug and dug last year so he is banned. sometimes we treat him and let him in, he loves it!

Last year my parsley also disappeared due to the same type of catepillar. I bet they will miss me at the old house this year.

HA! I like Riley in the garden. Maisie likes to lay there too...right as I'm watering!

One year I had those caterpillars in my tomatoes. I put one up on a fence post and by the next day every one of them had been eaten by birds. Kinda gross but it worked great. My little Rudy loves to lay in the sun too. Mimi

Love the pic of Riley sunbathing. I am sitting my GrandDog this week. We are having lots of fun.
Hope those caterpillars don't eat everything!
