The Dill Monarch

I just went to pull one of the last few stalks of dill that is still growing in my garden.  Not to eat, but to insure some dill control next spring, although it’s probably to late for that.  After I pulled the stalk & picked it up to throw in with the garden refuse, I noticed some caterpillars on it.  There were 5 of these beauties chomping away.  While I hadn’t noticed a lot of monarchs around this year, it’s apparent that they like dill.  I placed the dill back in the garden near the other still rooted dill.  I’ll watch what happens.  So the moral is don’t pull out your dill just yet.
