This past weekend was glorious weather, so I went out to the beach farm to plant a bit more garlic and pull some brassica. I found myself kneeling, searching the soil for creatures after pulling a particular weed, which I cannot name, with several minuscule white creatures.
The bug. Seriously small -those are grains of sand beneath, amazing I saw them at all. Good, bad, or ugly -still don't know.
It made me curious about other inhabitants of roots. I found this millipede in the roots dead basil plants.
I turned to see this fly on a recently cut broccoli floret.
Lapping it up, eh. A testament to the sweet juices of autumnal broccoli. Click on the image for even more detail.
