Spiders and Stuff

I was inspecting the corn today. The tassels are out. It won't be too terribly long till we have some corn. Isaac is so excited. He picked this corn out and considers it his. I noticed this one spot where a spider had encased this whole section, laid eggs and they have hatched. It's fascinating and disgusting all at the same time.

Can you spot the bug in this photo?

Here are some of our tomatilloes. We have green and purple. We have a pile of Jalapeno peppers in the house right now that the children picked a little over enthusiastically yesterday. In the herb garden I have a nice patch of cilantro. I just need the tomatilloes and tomatoes to finish ripening and we are set for Mexican food!

Here is how the potato bed is doing.

There are two bed of cantaloupe here in the center with three hills each. On the right is a bed of corn we planted later than the one on the left. You can't really see it but it's there.
