Holy ground cherries, Batman!

Specifically, these.

I have no clue as to what is eating the leaves.  Luckily, (so far) they don’t seem to be bothering the fruit.  It could be this guy (if you look closely there is a swallowtail caterpillar), but they don’t normally eat holes in the leaf, they eat  the entire leaf. (Here he is munching on parsley, which they love!)

I grew ground cherries from seed last spring and planted them.  They did really well, but those two little plants never produced enough fruit to make jam.  But, this year, holy moly, those little plants have reseeded and produced multiple babies.  ( I am finding them places I never would have dreamed they would be.)

I am hoping for a bumper crop (holy or not).  Here is where I posted before on ground cherries.

I can just taste that jam now…

    Wow, earwigs, I would have never thought of those. I’ll have to keep a lookout. I don’t spray, so I’ll just hope it doesn’t get any worse. =]
