Eggs

eggsThe other day I was rinsing off some organic tatsoi from Florida and found this egg clump. Tatsoi is a brassica — jeez, what isn’t this time of year? — so I compared these to pictures of Cabbage White (Pieris rapae) eggs, on the off-chance… but no dice. If anybody recognizes them, give a holler.
