out in the garden...when caterpillars attack

imagine my horror when, on a tour around the estate (aka my small back garden) this morning, i noticed that my beautiful cabbage with its purple-red veined leaves often sparkling with jewels of water droplets had some visitors...



i didn't especially fancy touching them so i used the funny little plastic foot i found to kick them off (i knew it would come in useful one day) and counted 15 of the black and yellow hairy little buggers!

once i had a saucer full of caterpillars i was a bit of a loss of what to do next so left it in the middle of the lawn to let them do their own thing...bon voyage! adios! i hope it's a one way trip!
