Home & Garden
The phone rang, and a gardener in tearful hysteria was there pleading for me to take her monarch caterpillars as she was totally out of milkweed leaves. At the time we had quite a few plants representing several species, both native and imports. I was shocked however when she brought me a box with 100 plus caterpillars. I went out to the garden and started dispersing caterpillars, one for a small plant two or three for larger plants. Deep down I knew full well we would soon be in trouble. In other words, I would run out of milkweed leaves too.
