Found a new caterpillar today on the cabbage. I wondered if it could be a later instar of the Cabbage White Butterfly so I went to the internet to do some research. I found out that it is actually the caterpillar for a moth.

Jenny & I have been working hard with weeding the gardens, planting new flowers and mulching with salt marsh hay the past few days. Salt marsh hay is a great mulch as it doesn't contain seed heads and helps to keep the weeds down & the soil moist after watering. Today, while weeding in the back, Jenny found 6 American Lady caterpillars on the Pussytoes she planted. We are excited as this is a first ever American Lady caterpillar for us and #4 caterpillar all total in the yard.
