Happily, the little green dot precursors to the lettuce leaf eating worms are greatly reduced. And we have quite a few leaves large enough to put in a salad. Yippee! A small victory for me.
Today I also found a large grasshopper munching on a corn leaf. Yuck all over again. After a bit of screeching I managed to hit him to the ground with a trowel, and then finished him off. The ants were happy, and one of the yard lizards has been hanging around too.
What can be next?
