Garden bugs, missing apples and our Kretschmann Farm CSA box!

Our back yard has 2 large old apple trees that produce a TON of apples each fall.  One is a yellow/green, and the other is some type of red.  This year the trees didn't bloom...or if they did I missed it.  There are some pretty cruddy looking leaves on the trees right now, along with a complete absence of baby apples.  I have no idea what happened, but it's very disappointing.

This is the largest tree and would normally be FULL of apples.

Maybe it has something to do with the leaves being all spotty?

The smaller apple tree is behind the too has no apples at all forming and several bright yellow diseased leaves.

Pinky cares nothing for apples so her sympathy is lacking.

I don't know how Kretschmann stacks up to other Pittsburgh CSAs, but we're some happy campers!

This little guy (or girl I mean) lived in the border around my beet bed. 

Don't know what type of caterpillar this is, but it sure is fuzzy.
