Very hungry caterpillars

These guys have eaten all the parsley, all the dill, and now all the fennel is just about gone. But that's why I plant those herbs -- just for the amazing swallowtails. I've never known them to eat basil, but yesterday I saw one on a basil leaf. I'll keep my eye on it. Giovanni and Giulia collected several, and Giovanni will take them to school on Monday

  1. They are so pretty and so annoyingly hungry. They ate almost all the parsley and laid waste to the fennel. I did get some fennel for salad, but it turns out we don’t like it that much. So the worms can have it.
