I knew my Raspberry bush was acting strange for this time of year. By October 1st I have covered my pepper at least 3 times and harvested that weekend. Today I ate my first fall Raspberry ever. It was the sweetest thing, tasted like jam.
I hope I get more. The plant is loaded.
We also have new life with Strawberries. Not so loaded but we are not used to seeing this.
Caught these two in the act. With a quick search I figure them to be asparagus beetles. I planted nine asparagus root last year and scattered them in my garden. I remember seeing a few of these bugs last year. This spring I put another ten asparagus root in their own spot now these buggers are all over my new garden. I guess if you plant it, they will come!
About a month ago I took a shot of what I thought were lady bugs hatching. Now I suspect it was the asparagus beetle as well.
