Spider Mites

This is as good a picture as I could take of a spider mite. The little white balls on the leaf are spider mite eggs.  My beans have quite a few leaves showing spider mite damage. The leaves start to turn yellow along the veins of the leaf and on the back of the leaf you can see a fine webbing. Look close enough and there they are. They look like little grounds of black pepper and are easy to see when the start moving around. Despite the mites, the beans are still doing well.

Another tomato harvest. Not crazy about the Tiny Tom or Floragold. They are nothing compared to the black cherry tomatoes. But the little plants still have lots of fruit to ripen, as do the black cherry plants.
