Things are going pretty well with the 15 caterpillars currently living among us.
Except for the fact that I am almost out of dill in the garden to feed them.
It is amazing the quantity of dill they eat every day,
experts recommend only using home grown dill as store bought could have pesticides.
The cage is clean,
this quantity of dill will only last a few hours.
3 Caterpillars have formed Chrysalis,
these would be the first 3 we brought inside.
In this picture you can see the silk pad/girdle the caterpillar forms
and later the Chrysalis hangs from.
- Look how big they are getting -
I hope they all get busy forming their "J" hooks and go into Chrysalis,
the dill situation is getting serious!
