We truly enjoy a host of other guests in our garden… swallowtails, monarchs and an occasional sphinx moth… all are welcome! Sadly, there are many UN-wanted guests who also frequent our space! Japanese beetles loved our raspberry foliage and fruit, even though I battled them daily during July and August. Of course, those darling chipmunks aren’t so darling when they devour several green tomatoes, leaving unwanted portions on the ground. Numerous baby bunnies seem to appear throughout the growing season, eating whatever they choose.
