Backyard Critters.

The pros to having a garden is growing food to eat and having the satisfaction that you grew it!
The cons of having a garden: BUGS! Critters, creatures, creepy crawlies! Whatever you call them they're still cons, unless, they're helping your garden grow. Here are some of the ones we've found. I warn: they may make you cringe!

Tomato Hornworm. They apparently kill tomato plants, so, since we've found them Chris and I go out there everyday and check our plants. So not cool of them and makes growing our tomatoes and peppers a little more tedious!

From my Google searches this is a Wasp Spider! I could be absolutely wrong but all the pictures I found look like mine so I'm going with it!

A toad? Frog? Bullfrog? Who knows but I know my dog couldn't help but swat at it with her paw, in a playful way. Don't worry I made Chris put it back before dog or child could do it damage! 

And here's another week or two worth of growth! I can't wait to pluck off all my green tomatoes, and the peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, and watermelons!!

Completely jealous. I wanted to give a garden another go this year, but keep thinking we might put the house on the market. Last year my container tomatoes didn't do very well.
