If it isn't one thing it's another...


If it isn't one thing it's another... I have had almost no aphids on the plants at all this year. Until a couple of weeks ago, I had absolutely none. Now there are a few. But they are not really the problem. The problem now is - caterpillars.

We had caterpillars some years ago, when we were away on vacation for a week. When we came home, they had eaten a couple of plants. Nothing left... Now I chase them every day, but still many leaves look like this. The caterpillars are not big at all, but they sure are hungry. Grow fat pretty quick... The positive side of that is that they are easier to find. Otherwise they are well hiddden. Have exactly the same colour as the leaves.

Not a very big problem, but quite annoying...

Wishing you all a great week!

Hot regards,


  1. Ta gärna ett kort på larven. Jag tycker de är svåra att hitta! Utan tveckan den jobbigaste ohyran hos mig

    Ha de gott

  2. Ja, de är supersvåra att hitta. De har verkligen det perfekta kamoflaget... Här är i alla fall en bild -
