“You have a Monarch Butterfly“ were the first words out of her mouth. I had a visitor and I was eager to see “the butterfly.” Instead, I was directed to that little green caterpillar on the tomato plant. Honestly, I had searched (without success) for some indication of the culprit destroying my tomato plant. Now, I’m thrilled that Mama Monarch found my yard a suitable nursery!! A prolonged search revealed the second–larger–caterpillar. ~~ It has been too hot for veggie plants–and no bees to pollinate–so I eagerly offer my tomato plant to the caterpillars.
