up until ...

I brought the pics to my local garden center today and they said it was a type of beetle they

Most of my 2nd year hops are up around 7 feet now, except my cascades, which have been getting

Ahh, I had it backwards. Then.... If you're willing to drive to Philly, then just jump on 202

As I was spraying to try to control a spider mite issue I saw this guy sitting at the top of my
hops. I researched and found him to be a katydid. The wiki on them say some eat plants, but
some prey on...
