Caught a Caterpillar

Lots of holes in the leaves of green bean and cabbage plants. I caught one little caterpillar mid-feast, but I didn't have it in me to kill him after his photo-shoot. So, he was placed in a leafy plant in my yard that grows wild and has plenty to spare. Hope he likes it there.
In the past weeks, I gave the green bean plants two tomato cages to help keep them up. I also had a friend give us some mulch/wood chips and I layered them around the larger plants to help keep in moisture.
Everything is growing so fast.

My garden today. 
I'm working on getting my old sprinkler hose and timer working to use on days that I can't water the garden by hand. I need to fix the hose connection and add a few more sprinkler heads and it will be great! All the seeds are growing, even those planted before some flooding rains. I love this time of gardening when each time I come out I see growth.
