Tuesday, Two Caterpillars

Katrina finished the caterpillar greenhouse for winter greens this morning, and planted mustard greens to round out the bed of spinach, cilantro, and arugula. The north side of the bed has sprouted carrots and beets already for spring harvest.


Greenhouse plastic slides up or down the hoops, held in place by clothesline anchored near the ground.

The other two caterpillars busied themselves on a weed in the trees down near the pond.


Who will this turn into? My butterfly field guide is trapped inside iTunes and I can’t open it!

The tail grips the stem…

… while the head eats what? The inflorescence?

Or the nectar? Or the aphids?
