A spider has taken up residence in the middle of my tomato patch, a beautifully spun web in between the plants where it plans to catch something carelessly flying by. I tried to capture the image with Lucy’s digital camera but for some reason it just wasn’t clear enough after looking at the results. The spider is smaller than a dime, a pale greenish gray with a pair of iridescent orange patches on its underside.
I did manage to get several tomatoes as they are growing larger each day. These are Early Girls, a medium sized tomato which does well in the spring; a quick producer before the summer heat bakes the plants. The plants are between five and six foot tall with blooms and tomatoes enough so we should be able to share this year.
