On arachnids



Our daughter is going through her Charlotte's Web phase. Mine has lasted 41 years, so maybe hers really isn't a phase. August and September are certainly spider season, and we found this little cutie in the veg garden hanging out with the lima beans and cosmos.

When I was planting out the fall broccoli on Tuesday (sans camera) I disrupted a beauty who was easily 2" long (legs stretched out, of course). I say "she" because her back was bristly with little babies. Though I suppose it COULD have been dad toting them around...
