Things that Make me Happy, and Sad.

Gardening always has its ups and downs: 

Love:  Gulf Fritillary caterpillars on the Passionvine.
Hate:  the state of the vine, and the fact that most of the caterpillars end up dying because of lack of food.

Love:  Swallowtail caterpillars on the Dill
Hate:  That I have yet to see a swallowtail chrysalis since the wasps/birds keep eating the caterpillars. (Perhaps I need to make a caterpillar hotel like Meredith at Great Stems)

Love:  Finding a new caterpillar.
Hate:  Not knowing what type it is.

Love:  Having a habanero plant that is producing habaneros.
Hate:  Not knowing what to make with all these habaneros.

Love:  Having a tomato plant producing tomatoes.
Hate:  Not knowing what type of tomato plant I have.

All those mysteries of life certainly do start to add up. Hope you find some solutions and turn that frown upside down.
