butterfly caterpillar, garden, c25k


this picture is of the swallowtail butterfly larva on my italian parsley
they will almost eat all of it
then they go into a pupa stage
and then later the beautiful swallowtail butter fly will be flying a around
our property

they also get on dill and fennel
and eat it all up
plant both dill and fennel twice a year just for them


this is picture of garden after have put on compost
added an organic fertilizer-use lady bug brand -
worked it all together then raked it out well

use a drip irrigation system connected to my rain water tanks
the drippers are spaced every 6 inches
the plastic tubing is spaced one foot apart so that
there are one foot spacing between the tubing
so water is evenly dispersed
also helps to keep spacing of plants one foot apart

have rain water tanks near my garden
use gravity to drip the water to the plants

later will show planted cole crops and row cover system to
protect plants from heat, insects, and wind

my c25k niece is on day 2 week 3 of the couch to 5k prep
she got rid of flip flops-source probably of her foot injury-
is off the elliptical and is now prep only for c25k

you go girl

its the 50th anniversary of the flintstones
why do they not age like we do
