Continuing with the butterfly theme for early fall, since the vegetable gardens look like this, and there is not a lot to say about that, except that okra rules.
spinach and arugula seedlings below okra
root seeds planted in a row--radish, beet, carrot (round! purple!), and parsnip
I noticed some striped caterpillars on my bronze fennel yesterday, which I immediately thought were monarchs, but they only eat milkweed, so now I am thinking black swallowtail. You'll have to excuse my bad photography--more pics to come if I spot chrysalises, or if these caterpillars escape predation from the birds, mice, and wasps that call my garden home.
