something’s eating my basil

damaged basil

We were editing the balcony garden again this weekend, which meant cutting down and unproductive tomato plant. It revealed a partially devoured basil plant and at the base was the culprit playing dead. I’ve never seen a caterpillar before and it became a curiosity for me. It eventually returned to munching away on some fallen basil leaves. I was amused by the caterpillar devouring the basil leaf.

I then moved it to the remaining leaf of the basil plant so I could record a video of it chomping away.

Eventually, I got rid of it – over the balcony. I hope it doesn’t find it’s way back to our balcony garden.
