My Monarch photo appeared on GardenStalking today! (Click on the photo to go the blog post.) GardenStalking is a sister site to DessertStalking. Join GardenStalking and submit photos! Monarch Butterflies only lay eggs on milkweed, and the Western Monarch is particularly at risk due to a parasite called O.C., and with loss of habitat. Grow milkweed and help support these dynamic, beautiful creatures. And the best news? The larva, or caterpillars, won’t bother your vegetables! They only eat milkweed, which you will grow especially for them!
