This is a stink bug. They are evil. They have eaten my tomatoes for the past two years. Apparently I grow tomatoes for stink bugs and raccoons.
This is the damage a leaf miner brings. They also are evil. Last year they ate the leaves off of my tomatoes. This year they are trying to eat the leaves off of my little satsuma tree.
This is a raccoon. They are of course evil, cute, but evil. For the past six years they have eaten my tomatoes, watermelons, satsumas and grapes. They have not eaten the broccoli, jalapeno peppers, and okra. They do like to pick the sweet pepper and throw it at the house (seriously). I figure they do that just because they know we are at war.
We've put up a fence between us and the swamp/woods and moved the garden to the front of the property. We thought it would help with the stink bugs and the raccoons. Yesterday there was a stink bug just over my mirliton plant on our newly raised fence and a raccoon on the patio eating cat food and giving me the middle finger. I losing and the war hasn't even started. Anyone else have a garden yet?
