Seemingly overnight, my beautiful blossoming zucchini plants have been reduced to this:
Yep. Some caterpillars were super hungry last night. Jerks.
It’s so sad. I never even got to eat one! I had so much hope. So much excitement and anticipation of a bountiful harvest of my all time favorite vegetable. And now, nothing but ugliness and caterpillars inhabiting my backyard! Ugh!
There is however some good news to report. Apparently caterpillars have a distaste for basil, watermelon, and green pepper plants, because these guys still look awesome!
I’m still hanging on to hope that one day I might get to eat some food from my own backyard!
So I need the advice of seasoned gardeners here… What the heck am I supposed to do now!?
