The First Real Harvest

Today I was able to harvest the first real harvest of veggies from the kitchen garden. I've been harvesting a little here and there- the radishes and lettuce are of course all gone, and I've been making pestos on an almost daily basis.

But today, it felt real. There were summer squash, eggplants, cucumbers, peppers, and green beans all ripe and ready to be picked.

While I was out there I found these guys on the parsley. I don't know what they are, or what they will become. But they are pretty. And as long as they only eat the parsley, they're welcome to stay.

If you can identify my little parsley eaters, please leave a comment. I'd appreciate it.

  1. They are swallowtail caterpillars. I'm sure you've found out by now that they will feast on your garden, but i think they're neat enough to leave be - they can't do THAT much harm. also, touch one of them on the back and see what happens (it won't hurt).
