Waged war on these invaders

Do you him there? That green caterpillar? Do you see the leaf he decimated OVERNIGHT??

He is the caterpillar of the small cabbage white butterfly and he is terribly confused. Why do you ask? Because he is on a CAULIFLOWER plant and his brothers aren’t too bright either because I found some of them on my BROCCOLI.

I’m sure my fellow homeschooling/unschooling moms are thinking that I took those caterpillars and turned them into a really cool learning experience.

I’m sorry to announce that I did not.

Upon discovering them I did not have my “hey what a cool learning opportunity” hat on.

I had my “who the hell do these caterpillars think they are eating my plants that are supposed to be food for MY family?” hat on.

So this round of caterpillars are gone.

Should their cousins decide to show up I will pause(maybe) to put my “cool learning opportunity” hat on.

After rescuing my plants from the invaders I inspected the rest of my garden and found these little volunteer zinnias

And these guys that look like a vining plant but I have no clue what.

  1. oooohhhh…what a naughty caterpillar!!!  I’m wondering if that is what ate my mustard greens and lettuce down overnight?that vining plant looks like cucumber or some type of squash.  I love all of your garden pics!

  2. Okay, I have no idea what you are talking about in this post because I can’t get past the pic of that cutie on your back!!! Is she a year yet? Is she WALKING??? Are you seriously done? Because I just don’t know how you can stop when you know they are gonna come out that cute!!! Love it!!!

  3. @dancinmomma – LOL…she will be a year next month! She takes about 4steps and then crawls…I’m in no hurry for her to get any better at it. πŸ˜‰ And yes, I am seriously done for tons of reasons among them wearing bras without flaps. πŸ˜‰ Although I do have to work hard to not allow her cuteness to cause me to have a moment of weakness.

  4. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, I keep my rep/senators on speedial, as well as my state ones. and the state AG.  Unfortunatly I have Benedict Arlen Spector as one of my Senators, just glad he finally came out of the closet about his true socialist views.
