I plant more than one dill plant in hopes of being able to harvest some each year. I’ll keep hoping.
Each year, I still hope I will get to harvest some dill.
This year I stopped counting at 35 black swallowtail caterpillars on my two dill plants. This isn’t going to a year I will get to harvest any again. They were beautiful to see. They were beautiful to watch. I am glad I have a healthy garden and they come. Now I need to keep my eyes out for the the chrysalis and also for the tiny eggs.
This year I was only able to get 2 dill plants in the ground. When i am back into full swing, I will plant more dill to try to keep up with the growing numbers of caterpillars.
We have a lot of the black swallowtail butterflies around here. They are beautiful.
Do you plant anything for the “bugs” or caterpillars?
