Garden Pests – Have you seen these?

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in my first year of organic gardening is that you can’t be afraid to get out there and squish a few bugs. Even when they are as big as your thumb. Have you seen any of these pests in your garden this year?

What pests have you seen this year?

  1. The caterpillars might be mourning cloaks. My son found them at our property and I blogged about them here: http://www.simplifylivelove.com/2011/06/garden-update.html (very last picture. Enlarge it to see better.)

    I love the pics of your hornworms. Just found half a dozen in my tomatoes. Only the second time in 6 years that I’ve had them. They’re so nasty.
