strawberries, spiders, and lettuce - oh my!

I was admiring how well my strawberry plants are doing this evening, when I noticed something strange on one of the plants...
a lineup of tiny spiders, seemingly crawling willy-nilly over a web, back and forth, back and forth. I took a closer look and found the source -
a ball 'o spiders! A teeny, teeming ball of itsy bitsy spiders. When I took a tissue to brush them off of the strawberry plant, they scattered in all directions.
We had some salad the other night with lettuce from our garden, yay! It's delicious, and no bugs (or squirrels, Josh) seem to be interested in eating it. We have red leaf lettuce (above), green leaf lettuce, (below) and butter lettuce (below below on the far right). Mmmmm!

And the blossoms are starting to appear on the sugar snap peas, yay!
