|1) Hummingbirds love this pink honeysuckle vine. (I don't remember seeing any on it last year?)|
|2) Scalding weeds is easier than pulling them. I kept refilling the tea kettle and as it came to a boil, just dumped it on them!|
|3) It's easy to grow butterflies in a bucket! These are Black Swallowtail caterpillars that I found on my black anise and dill. We give them fresh greens everyday. They just eat and grow!|
|Then they crawl up the side of the little bucket and make their chrysalis. If they attach to a green stem (or a green dot on a bucket...ha) the chrysalis will be green.|
|If they attach to something dark, like this brown plastic honey bee queen excluder that I used for a lid, their chrysalis will then be brown. Cool camouflage, huh? :)|
