So, the Hurricane’s been reading all about caterpillars these days — both very hungry ones and ten little ones. Surely this gardener is scarring her daughter for life, but about half the time (which is to say, at least six times a day) the Very Hungry Caterpillar meets a squishing death and five of the Ten Little Caterpillars never manage to turn into a beautiful butterflies (drowning, asphyxiation, bird snack, chicken chow, and fish food, respectively.)
Got a problem with that?
Those of us here at Plants on Deck feel it’s important to apply all that theory into real-world experience. And so, to that end, a certain hurricane put an end to the loopers devouring the last of POD’s chard.
