The cabbages that the boys brought home from school have gotten huge. Today we discovered a few new friends that have come to visit.
The advice of what to do about cabbage worms is pretty straight forward (squish them...quick!) but we're taking a live and let live approach to our new buddies.
After all, it's not often that we get visitors who are willing to put up with our noisy craziness for long. And these little guys seem to be pretty content.
So, we're just going to keep an eye on them.
(this one is full of little green balls... worm poo... who knew right?)
Word on the street is that they'll form cacoons and turn in to these pretties...
But until then, there will be no squishing. There will clearly be no stuffed cabbage either- But for The Hungry Hungry Caterpillar(s), that seems a small price to pay.
