We have had a horrific infestation of itchy, hairy, black caterpillars. We've found about 5 nests of about 400-500 caterpillars, and a few other ones with tiny ones. Horrible! No wonder we've all been so itchy. Their itchy hairs are in the air. We're in the process of exterminating them. Sorry, I can't live with this itchiness. Anyone who knows me well knows how much I hate all worms except earth worms. A strange fact considering I love gardens and gardening so much. Oh well.
Here are some random notes:
I took a walk the other day and saw 5 little pot bellied pigs not much bigger than full grown chihuahuas running across the dirt road. I've always wanted to have a pot-bellied pig and nearly grabbed one for myself if the mother didn't show her face over the bush. The sow looked very intelligent, and looked us straight in the eye with obvious curiosity.
In the meantime, so much to study, so much work to do- and it's all good fun.
Have a nice week!
