BST: to keep or not to keep?
I hadn't intended on butterfly gardening this year, but I've had 3 lovely little black swallowtail caterpillars (I think) show up on my dill plant. Judging from life cycle pictures, all 3 have reached their 5th stage. The biggest is over 4 cm and the other two are catching up.
If I keep them, will I have any dill left for me? The dill is in a 1-gallon pot and is about 1 foot high. I had intended to let my caterpillars stay, but they're chowing down faster now, and I'd like to be able to eat some through the summer (dill, not caterpillars). This is also my first year growing dill.
