Two weeks ago my Italian Parsley was two feet high. Then a few dozen parsley caterpillars moved in while we were out of town, and reduced it to almost nothing. Last week, my Baptisia was lush and beautiful, (of course it had already bloomed earlier but the leaves are terrific and this plant, about 4 years old, is about 4 feet tall and equally wide). Yesterday I found almost the entire top layer eaten by adult caterpillars, with about a hundred babies climbing up to the leaves on little silken threads. Wondering what is next - however I did harvest the seed pods from the baptisia - last year I had waited too long and they had spilled out. Thanks to the caterpillars, they are now stored in a bag waiting for spring.
