update on the monarc-pillars

We got some unseasonable weather for December and have had a little snow and some hard freezes, so I went ahead and brought the caterpillars inside. I have a portable greenhouse and small heater on the milkweed plants outside to keep them from freezing, but that was not warm enough for the little guys so I put them in a screen-top tank. Only 4 of the 5 were there when I brought them in, and the last one never has shown up so I guess I did not get to him in time. Another one of the original 4 bigs was sluggish for 3 days and then he died :( So I am going to give him a tiny little burial. I'm attached, okay?!? :D So I have 2 bigs and wee little numero fiveo left. The 2 bigs both had shed this morning and Fiveo was chomping away at a leaf. Shed and eat! Shed and about to eat! Eating to catch up!

    I have a portable greenhouse in the backyard. I personally love to grow vegetables. Their flavor isn’t even similar to
    what I used to buy in the market. I no longer buy tomatoes, ever.  If I
    don’t have a crop that I’ve grown myself, I go without.  Once I became
    spoiled by the fresh taste of home-grown tomatoes, I could never go back
    to those store-bought ones that have  traveled a long distance before
    they get to the market shelves.
