The weather is definitely getting crisp outside, but most of the plants are loving it! The red lettuces are getting even darker in color and the radicchio is also showing more color. This week’s photoessay might be more appropriately titles “Find the insects in the picture!” You’ll see what I mean.
This is a picture of one of the radicchio plants. You can see it is just barely starting to curl in to form a head. It this picture, there is what I think is a flea beetle. This is probably the hardest one to find. I didn’t want to start too easy!
Okay, had to pull out another hard one. There’s an aphid somewhere on this beautiful red butterhead lettuce. Here’s a hint if you need one.
Have a great weekend!
