I think the JBs are about done here.  Good!

Never plant without a bucket of compost at your side.

We suddenly have tons of these caterpillars around the yard.  Can't find them online to ID  them.  Some things I have noticed about them - they are hard to squish.  It's like trying to squish bubble gum.  They are rubbery.  
They can't walk on slick surfaces.  The pic shows some of them that I put in an old flower pot.  They did not climb out and died in there.  Today there was one in the bed of my pickup.  I have a plastic bed liner and it was having a hard time getting around in there.  
Then there's the matter of their scat.  They pee?  At least the one in the bed of the pickup did.
I first noticed them coming out of a clump of ornamental grass that the kittens have almost killed. 
So far I haven't seen them eating on anything but I am sure they are.    Any ideas?
