There are often unexpected critters helping us in the garden by eating pests. Here are some photos of a green cabbage looper being consumed by a paper wasp. The female will kill them and carry them to the nest and feed the young.
I have been an organic gardener for 30 years. I am the manager of the Decatur Farmers Market in Decatur, Ga. It is held on Wednesdays from 4-7.
I live in Stone Mountain, a suburb of Atlanta, GA, where my wife and I will spend the rest of our days creating a model of suburban permaculture. We have 3 acres with a .5 ac. pond, barn and land for growing. We grow veggies, small fruits, herbaceous and woody flowers, herbs, mushrooms, chickens and worms.
We teach classes on organic gardening and sustainable living. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
