The best part of the project was releasing the butterflies...after their wings dried out (and after Mommy put down the camera).
I tried not to pay attention to the lovely black swallowtail butterfly that was laying eggs in our carrot greens this month, but of course--our carrot bed has now become a swallowtail butterfly habitat. I've counted 2 caterpillars, so far.

Speaking of sweet peas, I'm also loving my hand-made pea pod necklace... one pea for each of my kiddos. Choose pendants with one to seven peas in a variety of colors from Rachel Sudlow.

Heads up: we are soon to be harvesting daikon (Japanese radish) and turnip (which confuses me because my Japanese grandmother always called turnips "daikon")... more unfamiliar veggies for our family... sure would love to convince my kiddos of how yummy home-grown can be--if only I knew what to do with everything!
