and my trusty,exceptionally cute sidekick
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.
And how the garden grows!
And my random joy
Sorry there are none of the teenager…she is elusive these days.
