Cicada in the veggie garden

I was inspecting our veggie garden's progress when I first found an empty shell, then a few inches away, this guy that crawled out of it. I don't think it is one of the 17 year cicadas that have been in the news, but a Dog Day Cicada.

Moving on to the garden... our tomatoes look great. I counted over 30 growing on our four plants.

I can't wait until they are ripe!

Pretty excited about the celery also.

Back to the cicada... he was really chill, just strolling around peering up with his big eyeballs. He just better not be eating my veggies.


  1. oh big is that bug really??

  2. He was about the size of my thumb!

  3. Yikes! How is it that he looks so cute?
