Let Them Eat....

Parsley !

As I was leaving the house this morning
  I noticed that half of a pot of parsley had been eaten.
The rabbits are coming onto the porch I thought
and then a second look showed me quite a few
black swallowtail caterpillars. And that is the very
reason I  planted the parsley.


  1. So all's well that ends well...I never knew that they liked the Parsley! I know that the Monarch caterpillars love Passion vine leaves and they nearly destroyed my two plants. I put on gloves and kept picking them off and throwing them over the fence since I did not want to kill them, but I also wanted to keep my Passion Vine LOL

  2. These are beautiful. I had parsley but did not notice any of those. It is gone now. I will looking around.

  3. I am giving up, I say this every year no more veggies, Thanks for ihr info, I have to buy metal primer.. Yvonne
