We raised five Black Swallowtail caterpillars that DH found on the parsley late this summer. Last week four of them emerged.
Clark ignored the caterpiller tank until the first one emerged. Then he was totally focused!
The butterflies were released as soon as their wings had dried. Clark hasn’t shown any interest in the fifth one. We’re still waiting for it to come out. If it doesn’t emerge this fall, we will overwinter it outside and let it emerge in the spring when it’s ready.
We make sourdough bread at least once a week. I have to share this photo. The loaves come out so beautifully. DH does a great job getting it ready.
I posted two new Christmas card shadow boxes to my Etsy shop yesterday. ChristmasNotebook

Crackers and Peanut Butter
Pan Seared Tilapia
Steamed New Potatoes
Smoked Pork Shank with Beans in the crock pot.
I’m hosting a quilt-in-a-day on Saturday. Some of the church ladies are coming to participate. They are bringing salads for lunch. I’m providing the rest.
Cheese and Crackers
Coffee, Tea, Lemonade
Alton Brown’s Pot Roast in the crock pot.
