They're Back

The butterflies are back. This big guy was just a tiny little pitter speck just a couple of days ago. Now he is ready to morph. The dill has been munched pretty badly.

I am really pleased with our tomatoes this year. I am growing 14 varieties, many of which were give seeds from the slow mail seed swap hosted by Monica earlier this spring. That particular tomato is a Better Boy, I think. Silly me didn't label anything again this year. Duh. There are two that appear striped, which would be Avivvi and Green Zebra. I also have a Mr. Stripey, which has one tiny little tomato on it. I didn't have any luck with that one last year either.

The garden is green.
We have had plenty of rain.
There has not been any really bad weather.
The butterflies are back.
Life is good.


  1. Lucky, I haven't found any caterpillars yet.

  2. Summer is almost are blooming, we are eating fresh IS good!

  3. I'm going out to check my dill as soon as I finish this comment.
    Also, glad to know I'm not the only one who keeps forgetting to use my plant markers!

  4. I'm coming to try tomatoes at your house! I've got those cats all over my parsley, too. They'd stripped it bare, but that's fine with me. I rarely use it and am happy for them to have it in the spring.

  5. I'd LOVE to see caterpillars like that here! My milkweeds are like a forest though, and the monarch cats are all over them :)
