Finally, after waiting for a good 2 weeks a tiny caterpillar has emerged. I was beginning to wonder if it would happen. I’m hoping the rest of the eggs will hatch soon. I’ve got many more if this batch doesn’t work out. It’s good to see though.
The mulberry shrubs began leafing out a good 2 weeks ago, a good indicator as to when to begin this undertaking. Although, I suppose I could have even started before. My concern is always whether or not my food supply will last and will I, in the end, have to forage outside of my yard for more? This year though, I’m seeing even more mulberry sprouts around.
