I discovered some munch marks on my Sage today, and went in search of the culprit. I didn’t have far to look, he was still in the herb patch!
This is the first year I’ve grown Parsley, so I have no idea how this Black Swallowtail Butterfly Caterpillar found me.
But he did find me, and there’s no way I’m squishing him. He’s just that cool, and I’m just that happy to have something so potentially beautiful growing in my city neighborhood.
You are one lucky bug.
So I guess it’s time to drop in a few more Parsley seeds in the herb garden to keep my cooking stash plentiful.
Here’s hoping I get a pretty butterfly out of it!
