We found a caterpillar (large white butterfly) in our bed at 5am this morning. Weird.

I share my bed with a pretty woman and a cute cat. Cabbage White larvae are a step too far for me. I murdered tho poor little bugger before he could eat my kale. Bashed his wee little green head in with felcos. Two days before Christmas and all. I expect I'm now condemned to the circle of Hell ruled by Dairmuid Gavin.

DG is not in my top 100 favourite Gardeners and I can only think of a few I've any time for...anyway your crime does not merit that serious a punishment...

Hope you and yours have a peaceful Christmas and a Joyous New Year...

Isn't it a bit OTT, attacking a catterpillar with felcos? Personally, I enjoy the squish between finger and thumb, maybe it's my latent sadist!
But seriously, if you wish to avoid problems like this, in future, discontinue stuffing your pillows with cabbage leaves. Hops, for restful sleep, yes. But cabbage? Does it do wonders for the flatulence?

Just cannot help but think of the Only fools and horses episode with Delboy, Denzil and the butterfly.

Heard on the local Radio the other Morning during a Phone-in...a caller stated "On behalf of my Wife I wish to make an apology to the People of Ireland... She complained about the Weather being to Hot"...no pleasing some People... Embarassed

Must be hot out there, I was treated for dehydration today. Spending too much time out there lately tending to the drills of veg - and still so much to do, help.
