So this morning, I went outside to get my newspaper and glanced at my kitchen garden, as I always do when I'm outside. "How cute!" I thought. "A fat, little monarch caterpillar is on my parsley. I wonder if caterpillars like parsley?"
A little later today, I go outside again and look.
Not one, but TWO Very Hungry Caterpillars have decimated my poor parsley plant. GAH!
So I did what any self respecting organic herb farmer would do: Scream like a girl, then pout and whine until her husband pulled them off and threw them into the side yard.
Jimmy is convinced that they were on a hot, caterpillar date.
My poor plant will recover (Just as it was getting nice and bushy too...I had plans for that parsley. PLANS!), and now I know what to plant if I ever decide to make a butterfly garden.
