Look who surprised me while I harvested my lettuce in one of my garden containers. As I started to cut this lettuce out he popped – some kind of a tree frog perhaps? He also looks like he’s shedding his skin!
June 6th – I think my little guest is a Cope’s Gray Tree Fog. They have a solid lime green colored back and he definitely does. Very common all over the state of Michigan!
I immediately went to the other side of this long container and harvested the rest of the lettuce. By the time I finished he was back in the pot and “peeking at me” as if to say “please let me stay”. Of course I said “yes” 🙂 See his sweet little eyes in the middle of the picture, peeking at me?
Wouldn’t you love a salad with all this beautiful lettuce?
Gardening can be fun even if you have a small balcony/patio and only have a container garden. I posted some new pictures in My 2018 Michigan Container Garden. My dill plant had a butterfly visit not too long ago and now the eggs have hatched and I have about (8) 3/8-inch caterpillars. Of course I am going to leave them alone to munch on my dill… I got a great picture but I have to admit they are kind of ugly at this stage 🙂
My garden adventures have changed over the years from a small garden in my first condo; then a huge 40×120′ garden and also a pumpkin and corn patch; then to 1 acre of all kinds of flowers, some veggies, herbs and edible flowers and finally to my current condo where I have a roomy container garden on my deck. It is only June 1st but I am enjoying all my visitors and reaping the benefits even in a small garden.
