Today I finished about a third of the “Step 3 Feed the Caterpillars” section of the Growing Butterflies page. Thinking this may be too much info going on one page, but we shall see. Hoping to finish Step 3 tomorrow, but that may be overly optimistic.
Step 2 in the Raising Butterflies section is finished, only three steps to go! Mostly text in the section on bringing in caterpillars from the wild, as opposed to only bringing in eggs. I’ve decided I don’t want to put up gross pics here, so if anyone wants a really good look at the revolting diseases and Alien-esque predators that can afflict your caterpillars, I’ve given you descriptions and the proper terminology. You’ll have to rely on Google (or DuckDuckGo!) for the gruesome visuals.
Nearly finished with Steps 1 & 2 in the Growing Butterflies Section. Tomorrow, I’ll finish Step 2 and get going on Step 3.

Tomorrow I will finish up the Growing Milkweed page. Am also beginning to realize that I will need an entirely separate section for bugs, in addition to the butterflies.
Today I added a lot of text to the How to Grow Milkweed page. Tomorrow I’ll finish it off with some troubleshooting tips and pretty pictures.
Added the herb pot experiment to the experiment section under Growing Flora and Fauna.
Today I added the Experiments link to the Growing Flora and Fauna page. I put up info on the Leaving the Leaves experiment. Tomorrow, the herb pot experiment! Stay tuned.
Today on the Happy Yard page I added info about and links to the Natural Habitat Evanston page. They just announced that they will have yard signs available explaining the presence of leaf litter in a yard and encouraging others to pledge to support wildlife by letting leaves lie.
I feel like a kid in school who shows his hall pass to the hall monitors. I am SUPPOSED to have leaf litter in my yard. I have a note that says so!
