After giving the plants some plant food and switching to my longer sprayer, I went to put away the food in a bucket and spooked the wolf spider inside! It jumped up a little at my hand but I was able to yank it back. Wasn't even trying to bite me, but FMIL and the SO told me that it would just really hurt- I wouldn't see funny colors. Unlike many other things in this desert that could get me, lol. Sigh.
I checked a few hours later and it's still hanging out in there!
Later on, we spotted four geckos hunting for bugs around the back porch light. So cute!
