Hi David,
This is a Grape Leaf Skeletonizer, Harrisina americana, a moth. Caterpillars feed side by side, devouring an entire leaf before moving to the next leaf. They range over most of the Eastern U.S. This is a new species for our site.

    French or garden sorrel, with its long single leaves and reddish-green flowers (June
    and July) is that which will be found cultivated but
    grows wild also and will usually be juicier and with a little
    less of an acidic kick than wood sorrel. It is a very nutritious recipe made of chickpeas and garlic.
    On the first summer weekend in June alone the Kansas City Barbecue Society is
    sponsoring no less than 16 BBQ competitions in California, Oklahoma,
    Kansas, South Dakota, North Carolina, Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin,
    Tennessee, Maryland, Colorado, Minnesota, and even staid old Massachusetts.
