Marvin has doubled in size in the past week or so. He's still on the same dill plant. I'm a little concerned, because according to teh Internets, he only eats milkweed. Tomorrow I'm taking a milkweed leaf over to his plant, just in case he's sick of dill. I bet he is. "Dill, dill, dill" he's thinking, "Sweet Baby Jesus, I'm so sick of dill."
Luckily I've been growing milkweed in the garden for a few years now, specifically for monarchs. So bringing him some is no big effort. Maybe I'll use a paper clip to attach it to his dill plant. Won't that confuse the wee bug.
Remember Heimlich from A Bug's Life? Yeah, that's pretty much what we've got going here.
