Black Swallowtail Butterfly Larvae on Dill in Garden

Check out this Black Swallowtail Butterfly Larvae on our dill at our organic community garden. There were several of these on our dill patch, so we should have some cacoons and butterflies later in the season. Neat. There is plenty of dill growing wild everywhere in the garden, so they are welcome to join us in the feast.

Dill is a wonderful, easy-to-grow herb that will reseed itself, and it also looks beautiful in the garden, especially in flower! And, the flowers make for GREAT dill pickles!
