Tastes like caterpillar

Matthew associates parsley with caterpillars, and I finally understand the connection.  While I don’t think that parsley tastes like caterpillar, caterpillars certainly find parsley tasty.

Chubby here is working to decimate our last parsley plant.  We’re allowing this because we’re nice people, and we think he’s a monarch.  However, we already stood by while three or four of Chubby’s siblings chomped through our other parsley plant.

Chomped 😦

Quite frankly, I’m ready for Chubby to be done.  On several occasions, I’ve said to Chubby, “Come on, freaking turn into a thing already!”  He’s certainly big enough, and I like to eat parsley, too.

Sharing is a two-way street, CHUBBY!

    LOL! Fortunately for chubby and his comrades, I am violently allergic to parsley and all of its relatives. So they can have at ’em as far as I’m concerned!

    So I misidentified Chubby and company. Apparently he will turn into a black swallowtail butterfly. ALSO — when I looked this afternoon, I saw more tiny caterpillars. Apparently they feed almost exclusively on members of the parsley family (including dill, fennel, and carrots).

  3. Well for you and the parsley – I do hope he becomes a butterfly soon! Cute pictures!
