Caterpillars - Gone
The cold weather last week has nipped all of the milkweed. Their light brown stalks standing bare in the garden. Tough times for the caterpillars, as a week ago there were many on these plants. But they "have their ways" as Saturday, when it warmed a bit, a monarch fluttered by as well as a Little Sulfur. The poppy seeds planted last month have poked through like spots of a bright green carpet.
In the vegetable garden, the cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, parsley, thyme, dill and sage are doing well. The green beans, full of blooms, took a bit of a hit!
