    No way! That’s disgusting. I can’t believe you witnessed it live and in person. That’s the kind of thing you’re supposed to just see on TV!

    • I know – outrageous, right? Does this mean I need an R18 rating in my food forest? Will sunflowers have to come with advisory labels warning casual passers by of the ‘dangers’ that lurk on top? or from behind?…. sorry….. I’m clearly traumatised….that was very poor taste.

      Do you think my garden’s going to get a reputation in certain praying mantis circles?
