Green Lynx Spider

Each new bug I discover is confirmation that we're doing something right. After a little googling, I think this is Peucetia Viridans or the Green Lynx Spider. It's an attack spider instead of one that builds webs (not aggressive to humans though), and tends to eat moths. Finding this in the tomato patch gives me hope for the future - I have seriously thrown too many gnawed upon tomatoes into the compost box over the last few days and I'd like to actually eat the tomatoes I grow. This garden is not intended to be quite so charitable.
