I know there was parsley there yesterday???

I went to water the plants and the parsley didn't have a leaf left! Upon a closer look, I discovered a bunch of
Eastern Black Swallowtail Caterpillars! at least five of them, just pigging out on the parsley.Well at least they will be pretty butterflies.

Too funny! I saw the title to your post and wondered what had happened. I didn't know they liked parsley!

this is so funny! i have a squirrel that keeps eating all my tomatoes! It is sooooo frustrating! It is amazing how one little thing can completely destroy all your hard work in one sitting!

I know the feeling!

Only ours aren't caterpilars and they aren't that pretty. Just slimy little brown things eating all the lettuce and parsley.

I'm sure we've picked off a hundred off them in the past couple weeks, I'm starting to think I planted some "slimy bug"-seeds by mistake.. :)
