Seedlings and Caterpillars
The radishes I planted between the carrots are looking good. These are a blend of Black Spanish, Cherry Belle, China Rose, Easrly Scarlet, French Breakfast, Long Scarlet, Minowase, Sparkler, White Hailstone and White Icicle. It's fun to see what you get when you pull one up.
These are purple top turnips.
I pulled out the dill and put in lettuce. Now I have a bunch of dill seedlings growing with the lettuce!
Dill is one of those plants you only have to plant once!
I hope the frost holds off until he grows a bit bigger.
I'm not sure what the Asparagus bed will look like next year.
The parsley has caterpillars too, but these will turn into Black Swallowtail Butterflies. They are different from the Spicebush Swallowtail caterpillars the parsley had before (which got eaten by birds!)
There are three of them. Maybe I should put a netting over them to help protect them.
Why don't the birds eat the cabbage moth caterpillars?
