Watch before you munch!

I have some pots of herbs on my deck. I really like fresh dill, parsley, basil, and thyme. I was looking at the dill yesterday and I saw two of these baybeh caterpillars. The dill stalk was sort of old and bare so I put them on the parsley where I saw baybeh tiger swallowtails. I'm planting a lot more parsley - these get big fast. I checked on them tonight and they're a lot bigger.

Check your plants - there are a lot of cool things around. The fireflies are putting on an incredible lightshow next door and we have tons of butterflies.

On the mammal front, we have two sets of twin fawns hanging around. Luckily they don't munch herbs and don't like going up on the deck.
