Would you like fry’s with or without the caterpillar?
Fall is upon us! ‘Tis the time to watch this crazy mom (tell me I am not alone here?) slam on the brakes, jump from the vehicle in a frantic effort to grab a caterpillar (which is usually a woolie worm) from the road, toss it in an old fry box and hand to the excited kids in the back seat.
Fortunately the roads we spy caterpillars on generally have very little traffic so there’s not really much danger. Hehehe… I have been known to stop four lanes of traffic for a baby duck before though…ahem… yes? Oh… we can discuss that another time.
And of course, my Hubbie has to outdo me in the garden with this group of caterpillars: What on earth is going on in my garden when it’s left unattended?!! I’m not happy with what these little buggers have done to my rhubarb patch.
But they have been added to the caterpillar camp. We did put them all in a larger jar. Dirty rotten little buggers… Grrr…
I prefer these little guys that the kiddos made with me for school. They don’t do any damage to plants in the garden and now the kids have some little fuzzy friends to play with while the real things cocoon up. You can make some too: Easy Caterpillar Craft
