Some more pictures.

 I'd previously seen the horned devil caterpillar... Neat to see the imperial moth hanging out on a cosmos plant next to the garden path.

I don't often get monarchs... I grow several kinds of milkweed but, when they don't fly in, they don't lay eggs. I saw the mama monarch laying eggs, and then saw 3 of these guys... Now, I need to look for those green chrysalises.

There's two gulf fritillary caterpillars in above picture... Earlier this summer, I had zebra longwing caterpillars on my passiflora

You gotta look close to see the cucumber worm on the stem of my squash flower... really difficult to get any squash with these guys inside all the blooms before they even open!

Good kitty! Something is eating my sweet potatoes and cow pea plants... I don't see rabbits... I suspect the rats.

Zebra longwing. Really mild winter last time... I've had a ton of these all season... most years, they don't even get here till nearly autumn.... I think they were able to winter over... 

licorice goldenrod (Solidago odora)

sand bean (Strophostyles helvola), I tried cooking with it recently... Gotta tell ya, you gotta pick those beans small... Let them get anywhere near their full size and it was like trying to eat bark... So... some were edible... some, not so much.

Oranges on my hardy orange tree.... I've already had some fresh squeezed lemonade... from above fruit.

Another pic of my biddies... I crossed a Silver Laced Wyandotte rooster with some tetra tint hens, and ended up with these gorgeous pullets! Oughta be a breed theirselves!

3 year old ghost pepper plant... Personally, I think these peppers are about as good as I can ask for when cooking... Of course, you may not want to use the entire pepper...
