Every other day, we water the vegetable garden and look for snails (the Spanish ones that eat up everything) and eggs and caterpillars on the kale and cabbage. And then we make sure to get rid of them (that’s another story).

When I was a child, my mom used to read me the story about The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and now I keep remembering the story every time I go out and see how much damage one little caterpillar can do on a piece of cabbage or a kale leaf. Amazing.

With some of the words from the story ringing in my head, I feel greater patience and persistence when looking for those small caterpillars, and remember just how hungry they can be.

Here’s a video of the story!
