The swallowtail butterfly caterpillars are back on the lovage. I did see one of the actual butterflies for a change. As usual, the caterpillars were gone a few days later. Next year, the plant gets a chickenwire cover to be sure that they are not being removed by hungry birds.
One of the grape vines decided it liked being in the ground enough to produce lots of clusters of grapes.
The excavation in the hill was the work of the ground squirrel. The critter who has been eating the tender sprouts that the veggies are putting out. Needless to say, this is war.
