This is just a fun photo post for anyone that did not see the daily updates of Caterpillar Friend on Twitter or Facebook:
How I met Caterpillar Friend…
So let’s start at the beginning. It all started with the balcony…
and my loved tomato plant that I grew from a rotten tomato.
The tomato plant grew to almost 6 feet tall! It was full of tomatoes and lots of pretty green leaves. One morning I went out to water the tomato plant and noticed half the leaves were gone, and the other half were all chewed up. So I explored and explored.
Then I found them, little caterpillars all over the plant!
I refuse to use pesticides or anything like that, so I just sat there picking them off for relocation to the park across the street.
But…I kept one…for the love of science, in a very cozy jar 😀
(No caterpillars were harmed during the making of this post!)
He didnt want to go at first but once he realized he could fly I let him go.
I love science! Do you?
