  • By the way, those squash leaves are not yellowing. The early morning sun was so strong that I could not get the picture without over-exposing the leaves.

    I also found evidence of a tomato caterpillar eating on one of the plants,but I have not found it nor is there any more damage so I presume one of my birdies got it. I keep checking and will let you know if I ever find it.

    Usually I use the droppings as a way to track the current location down. I thought the rain might have washed it away, but I do not see anything over the past day either so.....

  • Dear Stevelock,

    I can imagine.....right now I'm imagining you in a trench coat and bone pipe in the corner of your mouth, magnifying glass in hand down on your knees in the garden looking for caterpillar poop to find the culprit...sure hope you find him before he murders another tomato...your jailbird might, as thought,taken him out!

  • STILL can't find the poop, but found some aphids instead and a praying mantis eating on some.

    Need to move it to another plant that has more, but better leave nature alone, it might leave the garden altogether.

    Magnifying glass? Hmmmm, I better get mine out for the aphid poop.
