All the creatures that live in Homer’s backyard vegetable garden!! Homer took this picture of the grasshopper sunning himself on a green tomato while a catarpiller looks on. (And by the way, fried green tomatoes are great – without the insect, of course!) I’ve always liked this picture since it really showed all the life that thrives in the smallest places! This photo was taken in Penrose, North Carolina.

  • Thank you so much, Lori, for the comments and fav. Good luck with your garden! I know what you mean about the squirrels – they sure love the garden vegies!
